Thanks for the information. To answer your question, I have this issue with one of my design. The designs are not exactly same but the difference is noticeable only if looked carefully. Shall I go ahead with production in this case?
And as a part of the same question - if we like a design that is created by some other company, can we change it to a level so that it can be differentiated from the original design and save ourselves from the copyright issue?
What is included in a design copyright - if I change the color of the rug, would it be considered a copyright infringement?
