Abstract

Community Registered Design Rights (CRDRS) will no longer extend to the UK post-Brexit; national legislation will need to be enacted to give rights in the UK to CRDR owners. The registration process will also be affected.

Contracts referring to the EU or EEA may need to be amended and parties may need to pay attention to the governing law if UK law will diverge from EU law in the future.

The differences in the provisions regulating Community Unregistered Design Rights and UK Unregistered Designs could prove problematic for both UK and EU designers. In the long term, the UK may decide to revamp the relationship between copyright and design law.

Keywords: Design, European Union, EU, Brexit, UK, United Kingdom
