Hypothetical question...

If one took a spell-checker, such as Aspell, then:

 - piped the whole of Usenet through it for a couple of weeks
 - automatically removed all sequences of characters that failed
 - removed all duplicate words from the result

Would the resulting list of words be a "new" creation, unencumbered by any 
license attached to the spell-checker ? ;-)
