Protection of Layout-Designs (Topographies) of Integrated Circuits Act
It is an Act, which puts forward the basic principle, namely, that protection may only be obtained for layout-designs or topography of integrated circuits, which are original.

Draft regulations to the Act are currently with Crown Law, its status being that the regulations need to be redrafted according to drafting protocols and drafting instructions.
