Now in its second edition, Design Law: European Union and United States of America investigates the developing body of case law which has been steadily coming out of the EU Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM) in this area.

  • Shows how designs can be protected using the entire intellectual property system
  • Covers the protection of artistic, industrial and functional designs
  • Deals with protection under copyright, design, competition and utility model laws
  • Examines protection under EC legislation
  • Discusses the European Design Regulation, European Design Directive, European Trade Mark Regulation and EU copyright directives
  • Reviews OHIM case law in depth
  • Gives guidance on using competition law as a shield against infringement actions
  • Goes through free movement and market integration in the EU to understand the trade conditions that allow parallel importation
  • Considers anti-competitive agreements showing how and why these might exist and how to go about challenging them
  • Shows how parallel importation relates to royalty collecting societies and trade associations, automobile and film distribution
  • Discusses consent and the burden of proof after Davidoff and explains developments relating to how consent is given for extra-EU imports into the market
