But the only people who can own a copy of this "sequel" are
people that own a legitimate copy of the game.
So where is the plagarism? How does your "siphon off the
commercial potential" work in this case?

This ad hominem approach of yours is getting annoying.
You've presented cases which show that you do not believe in your
own assertions about what derivative works mean. Specifically,
you've claimed that derivative works are disjoint from collecitive
works and anthologies, but you've also stated that the same work
can be both a derivative work and an anthology. Until you can
present a consistent view of your own beliefs, I cannot take
seriously your critiques of my understanding.
