Book description

Protecting designs is complex and diverse; it involves deciding whether to protect them by design law, copyright law, or by both laws. A single protection may be under- or overprotective but two or more can be overprotective if there are no rules regulating the overlap. Legal systems in Europe and abroad have struggled to find the most adequate solution to this problem. This book traces the history of the design/copyright interface of fifteen countries, selected for their diversity in the way they dealt with the interface. It examines how these countries have coped with the problems engendered by the interface, the rules they applied to it over time and the reasons for legislative changes. This analysis reveals the most appropriate rules to regulate the interface at EU and global level and will appeal to academics, practising lawyers, judges, students and policymakers all over the world.

Reviews

'The Copyright/Design Interface brings light into the darkness of one of the most complex areas of intellectual property law. Mapping cumulation and demarcation approaches, the brilliant in-depth analyses provided by the authors culminate in important new insights and new impulses for better legal solutions. A must read for practitioners and academics alike.'

Martin Senftleben - Professor of Intellectual Property and Director, Kooijmans Institute for Law and Governance, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

'The book brings clarity as well as depth - and a much needed uniformity of terminology - in one of the most intractable areas of intellectual property law.'

Marco Ricolfi - Turin Law School, Italy
