SUPREME COURT OF APPEAL GIVES SOME CLARITY TO THE DESIGNS ACT
Thursday, June 07, 2007
A recent as yet unreported judgment of the Supreme Court of Appeal (Clipsal Australia (Pty) Limited v Trust Electrical Wholesalers  SCA 24 (RSA)) has established important principles relating to the interpretation of the Designs Act 195 of 1993. This is the first judgement of the appeal court dealing with registered designs under the present act. These issues are discussed hereunder.
