United Kingdom
The Copyright (Amendment) Regulations 2016
Paragraph 6(1) of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 prevents copyright from subsisting in an artistic work made before 1st June 1957 which at the time when the work was made constituted a design capable of registration under the Registered Designs Act 1949 or under the enactments repealed by that Act, and was used, or intended to be used, as a model or pattern to be multiplied by an industrial process. These Regulations amend paragraph 6 to Schedule 1 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 in order to clarify how article 10 of Directive 2006/116/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 December 2006 (O.J. No. L 372, 27.12.2006 p. 12) (“the Term Directive”) is implemented. A new sub-paragraph is inserted which provides that paragraph 6(1) does not apply to an artistic work which was on 1st July 1995 protected under the law of another EEA state relating to copyright or related rights.
