Texaco asserts that the "transformative use" concept is valuable only to the extent that it focusses [focuses] attention upon whether a second work unfairly competes with the original.

It is for this reason that many people refer to Texaco's activities as acts of "ecological terrorism," and the skull and crossbones are drawn next to the name Petroecuador on the main pipeline that connects the Oriente with the coast.
