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.

They may not have outright lied but their statement clearly implied they had no knowledge of this proceeding at all and that's just not true.


Now imagine if your insurance company took that same stance in a case of not paying out your claim. Because you had bought the insurance means you had knowledge of an event that would result in a claim. You would probably be all in rage...
In fact, many insurance claims have been disputed based on those grounds. Taking out an insurance policy right before some event.
