Design Registration

Founder Rob Law criticised the latest ruling that the surface decoration on the Kiddee Case was sufficiently different to the Trunki, as to make it a legally different product.

He said: “This decision is problematic on many levels. In theory it means design registration for a shape can be overcome simply by adding surface decoration – like a print, pattern or marking.

“It’s impossible to register the infinite amount of all surface decorations applied to one shape and this decision makes it extremely unclear what protection is granted by the European Design Registry, the body which grants registered rights in product shapes.”


Let battle commence between Apple and whoever decides to use the above get-out.
