Can software developers claim the copyright of code that was generated by the framework, which may not be created/owned by the developer?
For instance, .NET is a software framework made by Microsoft, and it typically generates a lot of code to start a project. Sometimes a developer needs to modify the generated code to better fits his/her needs. Can the developer claim copyright of the code that was not modified by him/her? Does the developer only own the copyright of the code that was actually written/modified by him/her? Does Microsoft have the copyright of generated code?
