As best I understand,, contemporary poskim rule that you must obey copyright laws. The problem is that they use different justifications (hasagas gvul, financial loss among others) because the classical sources don't address the issue directly. And because of that, some people don't take these prohibitions seriously.

The problem exists not just in designer knockoffs. Think of the Jewish music industry. A while back, someone posted an essay here that was obviously derived from a famous secular piece. She didn't think she even needed to acknowledge the original. I was surprised, but maybe I should not have been.
