I saw a web site that I liked and asked a firm to replicate its design, but not any of its content. My question is this: are web site design elements (color scheme, text font and placement,and navigation paradigms) something that is covered under a web site's copyright protection? In other words, would a site that shares these design elements infringe on or otherwise violate the rights of the original site's owners? Seems that a lot of site's share these design elements. Thanks.
