Improving the Effectiveness of UK Design Law

The Intellectual Property Office is seeking input on improving the effectiveness of design law in the UK. An online questionnaire is available which is designed to explore how effective the current UK design protection system is, whether designers and design based companies believe they can access justice, the effectiveness of remedies available for design infringement and the barriers to enforcement of design rights. This is an opportunity for those working in innovation in FE and HE institutions to express their views on the actual and perceived efficacy of design law, the availability of the various remedies to address design right infringement and to propose improvements to the current design law regime. The date for completion of the online questionnaire is 20 April 2012.
