Issue 4 for 2010 of Sweet & Maxwell’s European Copyright and Design Reports (ECDR), which has recently been published, is a bit of a design special. Cases reported in this issue include Beifa v OHIM, Schwan-Stabilo (noted by Class 99 here), Crocs Inc v Holey Soles, Partenaire Hospitalier (noted by Class 99 here), and the OHIM Third Board of Appeal decision in Unistraw Asset Holding v Felfoldi Edesseggyarto.

Class 99 thinks it’s definitely a sign of good times ahead for the design sector when three out of the four cases in this traditionally copyright-biased publication are drawn from design law instead.
