According to Cornell University Law School, collective work and compilation of work in the context of copyrights and fair use are defined as:
A “collective work” is a work, such as a periodical issue, anthology, or encyclopedia, in which a number of contributions, constituting separate and independent works in themselves, are assembled into a collective whole.
A “compilation” is a work formed by the collection and assembling of preexisting materials or of data that are selected, coordinated, or arranged in such a way that the resulting work as a whole constitutes an original work of authorship. The term “compilation” includes collective works.
Further, from Wikipedia: Under the United States law, which protects the human creativity expressed in the selection, coordination or arrangement of the material, the copyright office gives the following examples of compilations in which copyright might exist, as each represents compilations that reflect human creativity in preparation:
- A directory of the best services in a geographic region
- A list of the best short stories of 2011
- A collection of sound recordings of the top hits of 2004
- A book of greatest news photos
- A website containing text, photos and graphics
- An academic journal containing articles on a particular topic
- A newspaper composed of articles by various journalists
- A catalog composed of texts and photographs
