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.

+1.

Also thanks for the credit on the RCD in the current suit being filed in 2004. No, wait, you didn't give me one. oh well. ;)

There are no iPad 2 RCDs listed yet, but I suspect simply because they're still in process: from the workflow I found on the site, it looks like currently-under-review RCDs aren't posted. You can search in reverse date order, and if you do that, the most recent major sets of RCDs are iPhone 4 and iPad 1.

I don't believe they filed for iPad2 RCD. Moslty because the Smart Cover rip-off RCD is already there.
