Copyright instead of design patent
« on: 09-25-17 at 06:53 am »

This involves a design that was registered many years ago in a foreign country. That registration would presumably be a bar to a design patent in the US, but would copyright protection with regard to the appearance fixed in a tangible medium be any kind of possibility? Also: any hints from experience with regard to registration of this at the US copyright office?

Thanks in advance for any information!
