Design Right

Design Right
This part for the question that I have to completely answer
The concepts of “individual character”, “overall impression” and the” informed user” are the three key factors in determining whether a design is eligible for protection in the UK and in the European Union. Using relevant case law, critically examine how the Court of Justice of the European Union and the English Courts have interpreted and applied these three concepts.
90% of available marks will be allocated to the application of judicial decisions, judicial and academic comments to the topic under discussion and no limited writing style. You may present information in the way that best conveys your ability to analyse and apply your knowledge, understanding, and research.
