Title: Design IP legislation in the UK - an opportunity to innovate?

This paper constitutes a critical and detailed review of an investigation into design right infringement in the UK. The original mixed-method study was commissioned by the UK IPO in 2015/2016 and led by the author throughout the first three of four project stages. This paper focuses specifically on the results obtained in relation to registered design right infringement. The paper comprises the following points: A discussion of older studies in the area; An outline of the research methodology deployed for the design right infringement survey; A discussion and analysis of key research findings. The conclusions drawn provide insight not only into how design rights are used and enforced in the UK. They also help to establish clarity about the level of robustness of design-related IP options. The paper provides orientation to designers and design IP stakeholders. It culminates in a range of ideas of how the IP system surrounding designs can be enhanced in the UK and in comparable countries.
