Destroy Something

How far do you have to destroy  something before you can call it  YOUR OWN?

This is me destroying someone else’s hard work. Some nice woman
named Laura Lein-Svencner made a beautiful mixed media work
and had it published in a book. I totally destroyed it.
I’m so thoughtless. It makes me want to ask the question:
How far do you have to destroy something before you can call it
YOUR OWN?
