Legal Column. Engineers and the Law of Design

A vast number of engineering products are protected, or capable of being protected by English law. The design of the product is or may be protected by copyright, or by the registration of the design at the Patent Office, or by the relatively new Unregistered Design Right, or else the invention itself is capable of being patented if new and if it can be made to work.
