A good day for Karen Millen and fashion designers as unregistered design right gets a boostBy James Sweeting
The CJEU has handed down its much-anticipated judgment in Karen Millen Fashions Ltd v Dunnes Stores, Dunnes Stores (Limerick) Ltd (Case C‑345/13). It has clarified the law around the circumstances in which a design can be said to have “individual character”. The result is that fashion designers can have increased confidence in the protection afforded to their designs by the Community unregistered design right regime. The regime provides cost-efficient protection for designs with a limited shelf life and extends protection throughout the European Union.
