I would put money on you losing as the courts would see your efforts only as way to try to evade the IP which is NOT LEGAL, at least here in the greatest country on earth, Canada.

You missed the point completely. The courts do not make the laws. They are irrelevant in this discussion. I do not deny that IP law exists. I argue that the laws are logically bankrupt and therefore should not exist.

I fear you are bankrupt and trying to be a thief.

I fear that by making a failed attempt at humor you've conceded the point without realizing it. By the way I edited that post to make it more precise.

Trying to defeat any copyright protection is criminal no matter how you may PERSONALLY interpret the law or rules. Get over it and stop the BS, good bye.

Try re-reading the original post and you'll notice that my second paragraph specifically considers a hypothetical example to illustrate that I can edit an image the same way and the law interprets it differently depending ONLY on the magnitude of my edit, as opposed to the method, and even then there is no precise threshold at which the legal interpretation. It is as I said entirely subjective. My purpose is not to defeat the law, but rather to expose it as subjective, arbitrary, ambiguous, and therefore illogical.
