Designs and Copyright FAQs.

It is the purpose of the applicable legislation to differentiate insofar as it is possible to do, between “Artistic Works” protectable by Copyright and the design of a product.

An artistic work may be protected both by Copyright and by a Design Right which may be registered or unregistered. The best illustrative example, although not the only, is where the design consists of surface decoration.
