Abstract: For $ s>0$ given, we consider a planar domain $ \Omega_s$ with a rectifiable boundary but containing a cusp of degree $ s$, and show that there is no homeomorphism $ f\colon\bR^2\to\mathbb{R}^2$ of finite distortion with $ \exp(\lambda K)\in L^1_{\loc}(\mathbb{R}^2)$ so that $ f(B)=\Omega_s$ when $ \lambda>4/s$ and $ B$ is the unit disc. On the other hand, for $ \lambda<2/s$ such an $ f$ exists. The critical value for $ \lambda$ remains open.
