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 wish it was the case, but many laws are here to show that governments are not immune to corporate pressure. DMCA, ACTA, DADVSI, and now this Community Design...
