Submission + - Copyrighting Scans of Public Domain Books

quinnanya writes: "Is it possible to copyright photocopies or scans of public domain works, like old books or medieval manuscripts? Even if there's grounds to prevent someone from using the complete images, what about derivative works (such as using a picture as part of a logo, publishing an excerpt showing the manuscript's handwriting, etc.)? Sites like Digital Library of Illuminated Books Online have copyright statements, but are there legal grounds to support it?"
