Europe. It begins by mapping the genesis of the current legal and institutional frameworks for
the protection of designs within the European Union. The study then proceeds to set out the
major jurisprudential issues which have been identified through empirical surveys and
interviews. It critically analyses the issues in order to determine whether they may have an
impact on the effectiveness of design law at both EU and national levels, with reference also
to national and regional case law. As the Design Directive and Design Regulation are in pari

provide a coherent analytical and recommendation tableaux. Optional avenues of action, and
recommendations are provided throughout the analysis, and highlighted in the Executive
Summary, and in Chapter 7.
