Design Law: European Union and United States of America specifically examines the availability of protection under the EU Design Regulation and Directive, the Trade Mark Regulation, national copyright law, international treaties such as the Berne Convention, Paris Convention and TRIPS Agreements, as well as the US federal design patent, copyright and trade dress laws. It further 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. The book uniquely has a separate section on US law in this area and compares this with the European system. Contents Part One - Foundations: Origins and Rationales; Legal Etymology; International Perspectives, Repair Parts: A Law and Economics Perspective. Part Two - European Union: An Overview; Registered Community Design; Unregistered Community Design; Distinctive Shapes, Trademarks and Unfair Competition; Copyright and Unfair Competition. Part Three - United States: Design Patent Law; Copyright Law; Trademark and Trade Dress. Part Four - Looking Towards the Future. Jurisdiction: UK/EU/USA
