“Substantial” is a legal term – from FindLaw LegalDictionary – 

1a : of or relating to substance, b : not illusory : havingmerit [failed to raise a constitutional claim], c : having importance orsignificance : material [a step had not been taken towards commission of the crime“W.R. LaFave and A.W. Scott Jr”]

2. : considerable in quantity : significantly great [wouldbe a abuse of the provisions of this chapter “U.S. Code”] compare de minimis

Also, I found an interesting article about measuring “substantiallysimilar”:  


Although in a different subject area, might provide someinsight, even if the term “substantial” is not kept..
