I watched Johanna Blakley’s talk at TED on the absence of copyright in the fashion industry. While her talk was primarily about how other industries might benefit from the example set by fashion, in terms of the free borrowing of ideas and cross-pollination, there is an aspect tucked in there also of art, and where it is copyrightable. Very interesting stuff (and her bar chart is an eye-opener!). See it here.
