Intellectual Property Law: Did you know…?
Did you know that the new Intellectual Property Act 2014 will make it a criminal offence to intentionally copy a UK or European registered design?
The new Act provides a defence where the alleged offender reasonably believed that he or she was not infringing.
The offence carries a punishment of up to 10 years imprisonment or a fine or both.
