This Court of Appeal case interprets and applies the important concepts in unregistered design right law of (a) the meaning of a design, (b) originality, (c) commonplace, (d) the must-fit and must-match exceptions, (e) the exclusion of surface decoration, and (f) the duration of unregistered design right: it is however the interpretation and the practical application of the must-match exemption which makes this the most important decision on unregistered design right so far.
