I have read that copyright can subsist in three dimensional works of artistic craftsmanship. The aircraft was not " fine art " such as a sculpture. However it was unique, and it required several skills, to produce an object with a function. Does the existence of functionality preclude any copyright in a three dimensional object ? Are there any classes of three dimensional objects, which have both form and function, and which are deemed to be copyright works ?
