Fender do chase after people who copy their headstock design. For some reason, that appears to be intellectual property that they can and do protect. They probably don't bother with the really small-fry copyists, but you'll note that the more well-known companies who make Strat-a-likes do not copy the headstock shape exactly. Sometimes the difference is minor, but enough for anyone who's remotely familiar with genuine Fenders. Similar story with Gibson knock-offs
