Sounds to me like the argument circles around some warped
interpretations of the conundrum if a hamburger in a cardboard box is
a piece of the box or if it in fact, is a hamburger that can be eaten
separately without having to eat the box too...

No. It's more along the lines of having a cheeseburger with lettuce, tomatoes, and onions in a carboard box. The box is the medium in which the cheeseburger is distributed. But are the pieces inside merely aggregated together or are they part of a single work? After all, you can take the cheeseburger apart and consume the bun, the burger, the lettuce, etc separately (or not at all). But the person who prepared it and distributed it to you didn't intend for that to happen.

Wouldn't you have to have not been ignoring this thread to make that statement?
