Amendments to Registered Designs Act 1949

The government intends to amend UK designs legislation to provide registered design owners with the option of giving constructive notice of registered design rights by marking products with a website address at which the details of the registration would be published.

The government confirmed that it had no plans to extend the concept of constructive notice to unregistered design rights.
