Counsel Ivy Clarice Estoesta will speak on the panel "Design and Copyright: Which Protects What?" during the 2021 IPO Annual Meeting's virtual program. Her panel will occur on Thursday, September 30, 2021 at 12:30 p.m. ET.
Design rights can protect designs for physical and nonphysical articles. So can copyright. But what are the boundaries and differences in each type of protection? Which should you use when? When should you use both? Speakers will evaluate designs for sample physical and nonphysical articles and talk through their approaches to protecting the designs, including advantages and disadvantages between design and copyright protection in different enforcement scenarios.
