Legal Earlier this week, we were introduced to a new concept in intellectual property law: the European 'Community Design'. The Community Design is a sort of trademark on design, and sits halfway between a trademark and a patent. I decided to investigate what, exactly, the laws and regulations around Community Designs are, and what I found was shocking. Think the USPTO is bad? Wait until you learn about the Community Design.

Great idea! I will do the same. I felt safe from those stupid software patents here in Sweden but now this? I bet you there's someone, or will be, whom have at least one Community Design looking like my Stoffi application. Wtf?! How am I supposed to continue creating software when I have all these obstacles preventing me from creating even the most basic stuff?

I need my own damn country. Time to colonize the moon! Who's with me?
