Design Copyright System released

2014-06-23 09:17 Global Times Web Editor: Li Yan

Comparatively speaking, the design sector, which emphasizes creativity and originality, is more vulnerable to copyright infringement than many other industries. It's for precisely this reason that this year's Beijing Design Week (BJDW) has decided to offer a new means of protection for designers at home and abroad when it comes to the legal commercialization of their ideas.

An annual event, BJDW is scheduled to be held in late September just as it has over the past four years. Although there are still three months to go, preparation for the event has already begun. A part of this preparation, BJDW, in cooperation with the International Copyright Exchange, released the first domestic online design copyright system (DCS) in Beijing on Wednesday.

Filling in the need for domestic online protection of design works, the DCS is an Internet system that can provide timely online notarization of designers' works, acting as a complement to offline patent application at physical copyright exchange centers. The highlight of this system is that it doesn't just notarize a designer's work, but also their creative ideas and steps, the process of which is recognized as legally-binding by the Supreme People's Court. Designers or designing companies interested in this new system can refer to the official website of the DCS: http://www.designdun.org/, where notarization can be completed within 24 hours.
