Concise European Design Law, builds on the two editions of the design-related portions of the much-relied-upon Concise European Trade Mark and Design Law. The two EU instruments that govern design law – the Community Design Regulation (CDR) of 2001 and the Design Directive of 1998 – are expertly annotated by distinguished practitioners from a range of European countries in this thorough article-by-article commentary. It is the best first-stop guide to practice in the field.

What’s in this book:

The book furnishes detailed guidance, taking into account the case law of the EUIPO and its Boards of Appeal and the General Court and the Court of Justice, on the practical application of the following crucial building blocks of design law practice:

- all issues of substantive design law, from definitions to novelty and individual character, ownership of design rights, limits of protection, to the scope of protection and rights conferred;

- all proceedings before the EUIPO, from filing design applications to registration, actions for declaration of invalidity, and all provisions governing review of EUIPO decisions, by the EUIPO Boards of Appeal, the EU’s General Court, and the Court of Justice; and

- actions for the infringement of Community designs, with a focus on jurisdiction and applicable law.

The book also encompasses a unique collection of EU and international legislation of relevance for design protection, found in no other reference book, including the Community Design Implementing and Fee Regulations, the Enforcement of IP Rights Directive, excerpts from the Rules of Procedure of the General Court, and relevant provisions from applicable international treaties, such as the TRIPS Agreement, the Paris Convention, the Geneva Act of the Hague Agreement, and the Locarno Agreement.

How this will help you:

This succinct book on designs is a handy desktop companion and single reference tool for daily use by every practitioner in the EU and elsewhere who practises design law. It will be appreciated by IP lawyers, in-house counsel, and government officials involved with design policy and procedure.
