Regarding the issue whether PANTONE colors can be copyrighted or not:
Not being a lawyer, but a developer, I'd like to think about it from a moral aspect. PANTONE has created a very strong brand out of its set of colors, by carefully choosing them, naming them and marketing them. And also by protecting their brand, when a customer buys a PANTONE product, he/she can be sure about the quality of the product. This was costing them a lot of money, and they have every right to protect their investment. If someone think that it is easy to create a color library, why not do it, just call it BLUFFTONE, pick your own color names and numbers, and convince the rest of the world that they should use it. Just don't get into a habit of asking other people to give away their work for free. If you want to do it, just do it.
