As simple as i can put it...
By only having objects look like the real thing and not naming them the real thing is it easier and cheaper to obtain copyright usage?
Having the F22 Raptor named the Advanced Air Superiority Fighter.
Or naming the Abrams the Depleted Uranium Main Battle Tank.
Thank you for your time and response,

Nothing here to copyright. Brand names are trademarks. Designs are patents. You're in the wrong ball parks. See the Patent and Trademark Office.

Thank you for your reply.
And thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
So as I understand it then. By not using the names I'm avoiding one legal arena but still have patents to sort out.
Obviously an entertainment lawyer will eventually be needed but right now I'm just trying to get a feel for what this subject is about.
