Abstract

Whereas copyright protects original expressions, industrial designs protect aesthetic and functional features of products. Overlaps of the two types of protection create a host of problems. A historical review of international and EU efforts to solve the problem of industrial design protection serves as a useful basis to compare how several legal systems have tackled the copyright/design interface over time. This forms the analytical basis for examining similarities, differences and trends in legislation used to organise the interface namely using copyright law, sui generis design right(s), or both and of the criteria used to fix the boundary between works of art and industrial designs. Drawing from all this it is possible to propose a workable model for a copyright/design interface.
