Design Rights in Lockers Secured
13 December 2016
We are pleased to report the successful enforcement of our client Action Storage Systems Limited’s UK unregistered Design Rights in their highly successful eXtreme plastic locker.
The IPEC judgement, handed down by Judge Hacon on 7 December, demonstrates the
power of the unregistered Design Right in restraining copying and the power of disclosure
in revealing evidence of copying. Various defences were raised and although none
displaced the fact of infringement of the overall design, they did give rise to some
interesting points of law.
