Designs have underpinned much of the technological and industrial innovation of recent years. They have become increasingly valuable within the portfolio of intellectual property rights. Indeed, given the extent to which economic growth is driven by these advancements and the ever-increasing financial benefits of holding exclusive exploitation rights for the most significant designs, the importance of protecting such designs cannot be understated.

International Design Protection is an international compendium of design law in a selection of major jurisdictions. It covers the applicability of registered and unregistered design rights and ancillary protection by copyright and trademarks. It also deals with the practicalities of design protections and the enforcement of design rights, including qualification for protection, infringement, design infringement litigation, licensing and exploitation.

Written by a team of leading specialists in design law, this updated second edition reflects recent developments across a number of jurisdictions and is an essential practical guide to navigating this complex and fascinating field.
