Re: just imagine

Trademarks and Trade dress are not
the same thing at least in the US.

"In the U.S., like trademarks, a product’s trade dress is legally protected by the Lanham Act, the federal statute which regulates trademarks and trade dress.[2] Trade dress protection is intended to protect consumers from packaging or appearance of products that are designed to imitate other products; to prevent a consumer from buying one product under the belief that it is another.[3] For example, the shape, color, and arrangement of the materials of a children's line of clothing can be protectable trade dress (though, the design of the garments themselves is not protected),[4] as can the design of a magazine cover,[5] the appearance and décor of a chain of Mexican-style restaurants,[6] and a method of displaying wine bottles in a wine shop.[7]"
