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.

I am a fanatic reader of osnews for many years (propably since 2002) but never had thought of registering till now. It is the most shocking article I read on osnews so far.

I want to thank you for your research on that matter, I shall contact european parliament members that I personally know and inform them about that very specific important exploitation.

Thank you.
