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.

Wonder what this will mean for Windows 8 tablets.
What will Microsoft tell their partners when they want to develop tablets for the European market.
And if Apple let those slide how will this biasness affect other cases.
