Over ten years after the beginning of the Community Registered Designs system of the European Union (EU), the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) and European courts continue to grapple with many of the new legal concepts introduced, making this a complex and fluctuating area of law. This new edition of the highly-respected English-language text offers a concise, accessible and highly readable volume covering the complete design law of the European Union. It offers a concise history of the legislation's development and aims, tracing the introduction of fundamental changes to the protection of industrial and ornamental designs throughout the EU. This is followed by a detailed and comprehensive examination of the interpretations provided by the OHIM, Court of Justice and General Court, and the Community Design Courts of EU Member States. The book quotes primary legal provisions in context, supported by extensive citation of case law from the OHIM and many European jurisdictions. Chapters cover topics including the definition of terms, the system of courts and tribunals with jurisdiction for Community Design disputes, overlap with other intellectual property rights, exclusions from protection, the unification of design rights across the EU, the right to the Community Design, assessment and invalidity of prior design and novelty arguments, the procedure of the OHIM, infringement and applicable defenses, jurisdictional issues, and the Design Directive. European Design Law: A Practitioner's Guide is an essential reference text for practitioners throughout the European Community.

Design ist fur den Markterfolg eines Produkts einer der wichtigsten Wettbewerbsfaktoren. In Europa gibt es dafur zwei recht junge Schutzsysteme: Neben dem nationalen Schutz (in Deutschland durch das eingetragene Design) existiert mit dem Gemeinschaftsgeschmacksmuster ein autonomes, supranationales Schutzrecht. Der wirtschaftliche Wert dieser Schutzrechte zeigt sich allerdings erst im Verletzungsverfahren. Von zentraler Bedeutung ist dabei, wie weit der Schutzumfang eines eingetragenen Designs bzw. Gemeinschaftsgeschmacksmusters reicht. Teresa Christof untersucht diese Frage eingehend. Sie entwickelt praxisgerechte Losungsmoglichkeiten, um den Schutzumfang eines eingetragenen Designs bzw. Gemeinschaftsgeschmacksmusters zu bestimmen. Dabei wird auch das Verhaltnis von Schutzumfang zur Schutzentstehung berucksichtigt, wodurch fur die Praxis bedeutende Anmeldestrategien ebenfalls Beachtung finden.

This book consists of contributions exploring from different perspectives the 'images' of the consumer in EU law. The images of the consumer form the foundation for various EU policies, more or less directly oriented towards the goal of consumer protection. The purpose of the volume is to establish what visions of the consumer there are in different contexts of EU law, whether they are consistent, and whether EU law's engagement with consumer-related considerations is sincere or merely instrumental to the achievement of other goals. The chapters discuss how consumers should be protected in EU contract, competition, free movement and trade mark law. They reflect on the limits of the consumer empowerment rationale as the basis for EU consumer policy. The chapters look also at the variety of concerns consumers might have, including the cost of goods and services, access to credit, ethical questions of consumption, the challenges of excessive choice and the possibility to influence the content of regulatory measures, and explore the significance of these issues for the EU's legislative and judicial process.

In the new ‘knowledge-intensive economies’ Intellectual assets increasingly play a key part on balance sheets. There is an increasing global awareness that in order to promote innovation and the growth of the economy, businesses must fully recognise and exploit their intellectual assets. A company’s ability to innovate rapidly and successfully is now regarded as essential and most breakthroughs are made by Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), usually with no in-house legal professionals to help them. It is essential that those working with or creating intellectual property rights (IPR) are aware of the basics of Intellectual Property Law. Intellectual Property Asset Management provides business and management students at all levels with an accessible-straight-forward explanation of what the main Intellectual Property rights are and how these rights are protected. Locating the subject squarely in a business context and using case studies and examples throughout drawn from a wide range of business organisations, it explains how an organisation can exploit their rights through licensing, franchising and other means in order to make the best possible use of their IP assets. This book will provide students with: • the basic Intellectual Property law knowledge needed to identify a potential IP issue • the tools and understanding to assess an IP breach • the ability to identify where the problem cannot be solved in house and where expert legal assistance is required • the knowledge required to work effectively with lawyers and other legal professionals to achieve the desired outcome

Although the law of infringement is relatively straightforward on the copying of literal and textual elements of software, it is the copying of non-literal and functional elements that poses complex and topical questions in the context of intellectual property (IP) protection. In many cases, it is these non-literal and functional elements that contain the real value of a software product. This book concerns the copying of non-literal and functional elements of software in both the United States (US) and European Union (EU), using a holistic approach to address the most topical questions facing experts concerned with legal protection of software products across a range of technological platforms. The book focuses on four distinct but interrelated areas: contract, copyright, trade secrets, and trade-dress; as well as dealing more briefly with patent law, designs, and competition law, discussing these areas separately and in relation to one another. The book discusses software as a multi-layered functional product, setting the scene for other legal discussions by highlighting software's unique characteristics. It examines models for the provision of software, addressing licensing patterns and overall enforceability, as well as the statutory and judicial tools for regulating the use of such licences. It further assesses the protection of non-literal and functional software elements under EU and US copyright law, focusing on internal architecture and behavioural elements. The application of trade secrets law to software is examined under traditional, online, and cloud models. Finally, it examines the application of trade dress protection to software's 'look and feel', particularly relating to the highly topical area of cloud environments. Protecting Software offers a unique outlook on contemporary issues concerning the legal protection of computer software.
