Russell-Clarke & Howe presents definitive analysis of all aspects of the law relating to the protection of industrial designs in the UK. It shows how to get the best from each of the five legal rights protecting design: UK registered designs, UK unregistered design right, artistic copyright, the Community registered design and the Community unregistered design right.

  • Offers analytical, high level commentary, whilst maintaining a practice focused edge
  • Pays particular attention to the two European legal rights, covering case law and key developments since their creation in 2002
  • Covers practical topics such as infringements, remedies, legal proceedings, licensing and EU law and competition
  • Looks at infringement and validity disputes and threats actions
  • Considers parallel importation under the EU and how it relates to industrial designs
  • Covers design law in the Commonwealth and former Commonwealth countries
  • Discusses the government response to consultation on improving the framework for UK design law, including the redefinition of UK unregistered design right and proposed criminal sanctions for deliberate copying
  • Explains the implications of important recent case law
  • Reproduces all the relevant sections of UK and EU legislation
