This chapter considers the way in which design right comes into being, whether by registration in the case of registered designs in the United Kingdom or automatically in the case of unregistered designs. It also discusses the conditions that must be satisfied for an unregistered design right to arise, as well as the procedures for applying for national registered design protection in the UK. The chapter also explains the ramifications of Brexit for design protection in the UK.
