There are some interesting journals on the Internet about design rights:
As the picture shows, Copyright is part of someone’s Intellectual property rights. ‘Copyright is a legal right created by the law of a country that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights for its use and distribution. This is usually only for a limited time.’
If you are interested in this topic, you should read this book about interesting Cambridge Studies in Intellectual Property Rights.
