That's pretty much what I am talking about. Good example would be: you are in an art class with 10 other people. Your project is to paint a particular design. You ALL use the same method of painting, be it tole, watercolor, onestroke, etc. Now you have 10 paintings of the same design, but they all look individually different. One person in the class copywrights the design. What exactly does that mean to everyone else? Can no one any longer do that particular design? I am presuming that when someone copywrights a handpainted design, the purpose of that copywright is so no one can take that actual/exact design say, to an art shop and have it copied and use it to mass produce it on t-shirts, coffee mugs, or something like that. I wouldn't think it would prohibit anyone from doing their own interpretation of it.
