And even non-artistic photography...

However, this case draws a real distinction between the human process
of originality, and an automated process according to a set of rules.

I've no doubt that if I take a photo out of an aeroplane window that
copyright subsists in that photo.  However, it would be interesting to
see what the courts would now make of a satellite taking photos
automatically according to a standard process of the earths surface.
