Design is integral to our everyday lives and generally involves some creative effort that fulfils a purpose. A well-designed product is likely to be better received than a poorly designed one. Design is now seen as an essential element to any commercial success in business and a key driver of consumer purchases. Australian Design Law & Practice is the first dedicated book on Design Law for more than 20 years. This book examines how creators of designs may seek legal protection in Australia and provides a clear and cogent analysis of the law relating to the Designs Act 2003 (Cth) and its regulations. This book will serve as a valuable and timely resource for practitioners and researchers working in the field of Intellectual Property (IP) Law, as well as designers and students interested in the Australian design system.
