Lawsuit over “Gorilla holding cage” Halloween costume!

I like these creative Halloween costume such as the Gorilla holding a cage or the weird Easter bunny with man in lap costumes.

These are not new ideas, I remember them from the 1960's:

Evidently this has sparked a lawsuit over the rights to this “invention” (actually a copyright), with a snowballs chance in Hell of winning:

Company sues over right to Gorilla holding cage costume.

IANAL but you cannot copyright clothing . . .

Plus, I remember seeing these types of costumes in the 1960’s years before this clown tried to protect it as his property.

This lawsuit is a candidate for the Stella awards, given for frivolous litigation!
