*Original composition" and "original interpretation" terms

In an "original composition", all musical components of the composition are novel. In an "original interpretation", the novel musical contribution significantly outweighs a pre-existing contribution. Such a case may present itself for example in the case of a significantly novel interpretation of a known melody.
