Copyright Law !!!9/30/15
Can someone please give me some advice on copyright laws in the furniture industry. I am planning on designing and selling some furniture pieces but I'm a bit afraid of infringing someone's copyrights. Any insights are appreciated!
If you aren't deliberately cloning original work from another designer, then this is not your biggest worry. Do your own work, and concentrate on getting customers. Good luck!
Do they have a valid copyright on the specific product that is similar to the one you want to develop.
From ten feet away would your product look the same in every way as theirs, if so you are probably infringing upon their copyright.
One of the companies I design for is very aggressive in protecting their copyrights.
