We went through this onlist with my "why can't I take the work off the
wall?" question last year (I forgot to say thank you to everyone who
responded to that at the time, so thank you everyone who responded...).
But I think this is different from the copyrightability of 3D objects,
which is based on their functional or decorative^D^Dcreative nature. The
Public Knowledge discussion of 3d printed "Settlers of Catan" game tiles
covers this well, although I'm not sure I follow all of their reasoning.
