That should be covered under a "derivative works" clause, and IT'S FAIR to do that. Otherwise, the user of unlicensed content is enslaving the original creator and gaining money off of it. I would support a reduced fee commensurate with the amount of a work and it's licensing fee schedule taken completely into consideration.

WRONG. The thief of original content steals the "right to control dissemination, distribution, to negotiate compensation, collect compensation, and choose when, where, and how to license any derivative works to whom, based on that original content". Big difference, your example is infantile.
