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.

You don't really seem to engage with the fundamental nature of the situation, though. Your argument seems to be 'hey, this is normal, so what's the problem?', which is fine as far as it goes, but it _can_ be the case that what's 'normal' in a given legal system is not particularly equitable. The RCD system, at least to laypeople, sure looks like that.
