How long is it? How wide? How tall? Basic shape. How do the handles attach?
The design of the bag itself. The design of a plain white or black or red
dress.

Some at least are trying to get it though:

http://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/copyright-protection-for-clothing-desig...

And how are they justifying it in the article? They want a big copyright
proponent to have to pay them for alledgedly making a knockoff of a dress
design for use in a big movie without paying the dress designer.

and the like. And not by a long shot.

all the best,
