What percentage of a design must be changed to avoid copyright infringement?
 
This has to be determined on a case-by-case basis and can’t be answered in general. You should consult the question "How much of another person’s work can I use and still be protected by fair use?" for more information.
 
If you are web designer/developer who wants to know how much or little you should rely on fair use for your business, feel free to contact us at New Media Rights at (619) 591-8870 or support@newmediarights.org for free, pro bono legal assistance.
