N2 - We extend the definition of quasi-factors for infinite-measure-preserving transformations. The existence of a system with zero Krengel entropy and a quasi-factor with positive entropy is obtained. On the other hand, relative zero-entropy for conservative systems implies relative zero-entropy of any quasi-factor with respect to its natural projection onto the factor. This extends (and is based upon) results of Glasner, Thouvenot and Weiss [6, 7]. Following and extending Glasner and Weiss [8], we also prove that any conservative measure-preserving system with positive entropy in the sense of Danilenko and Rudolph [3] admits any probability-preserving system with positive entropy as a factor. Some applications and connections with Poisson-suspensions are presented.
