ADA is a members-based education platform aiming for design theft to be criminalised in line with new legistlation in Europe and Britain.
We advocate for extended design protection for furniture and lighting designers per the EU / UK - aiming for a 2 year grace period from the time of creation until design is registered; extended design registration period (current 5+5 years should be minimum 25 years); and automatic copyright granted for furniture and lighting designs.
In April the United Kingdom introduced penalties of up to £50,000 /10 years jail for those selling fake designer furniture, so is it time for Australia to step up our game?
