 Haven't heard about this case before. Sounds like an interesting
 case. I'll venture to say [...] that a casting could be considered
 protected intellectual property. Two companies could both attempt to
 make castings of an original specimen, and they could both end up
 pretty different. There's technique and intellectual artistry
 applied, so it seems like they could be considered as such.

That said, the better the casts are, the more similar will they be to each other. Ideally, they'll be indistinguishable (if they're not dyed differently or whatever).
