Artistic designs

In a previous article published on 24 March 2016 it was identified that the IPO were reconsidering the implementation date for the proposed changes to copyright protection for articles which qualify as “artistic works”.

The original date for the change was April 2015 with a 5 year transitional period. This was later revised to April 2016, after being challenged, with a much reduced transitional period until 28 October 2016. The latest position is that the changes will now become effective on 28 July 2016 with a transitional period ending on 28 January 2017.
