That has been pointed out several times: The Berne Convention (Paris
text 1971, English version), article 2, section 3:

| (3) Translations, adaptations, arrangements of music and other
|     alterations of a literary or artistic work shall be protected as
|     original works without prejudice to the copyright in the
|     original work.

Notice the last nine words.
