I've quoted Berne and relevant law where I've worked as a translator.
Could you please quote a statute or tell us about cases when
translation was not considered a creative work, or jurisdictions where
those the translator doesn't get control? If we are talking about
non-Berne countries, we should be making that proviso for anything we
discuss on this list, as Creative Commons licenses are based on Berne.
