They've done it to music and publishing, why not fashion? I'm not a fashionista but even I know that if they make knock-offs illegal that will be the end of the fashion industry. But that seems to be where the U.S. copyright industry is now headed. Carmen Marc valvo perhaps says it best: "Fashion is more evolutionary than revolutionary -- you're always inspired by something else. Besides, I don't think anyone copying me would be able to do it the same way." Come to think of it - science, literature and art work that way too. Via Hotlinks via Kottke.
