OK, thanks, that was interesting. Like I said further down, I know very little about design right. It's not part of the law I deal with on a regular basis. So thanks for the correction there. (Having said that, the US does have a form of design protection - design patents, I'm informed. Contrary to assertion, I'm not comfortable talking about law I know nothing about, so I'll not go further with that, but depending on how they work, I think the argument may still be valid. ) I'm not convinced by your reasoning on the main point, but it's an interesting argument. Thanks for articulating it. Out of interest, since we're talking about actual cases, do you know of any cases like this that have been prosecuted? Kelly vs Arriba Soft Corp, which is quite a famous case, would seem to tread the same ground, and didn't end well for the plaintiffs.
