Black Is Back: Maritime and Commercial Court of Denmark Rules in Landmark Copyright Case

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearch

Abstract

In a landmark judgment for Danish design, the Maritime and Commercial Court of Denmark found that the supermarket chain Netto’s (owned by Salling Group A/S) marketing of Anne Black’s protected design had damaged not only the affected designs but also the brand and company Anne Black. Netto and production company Ronald A/S were ordered to pay DKK 1.5 million in compensation to Anne Black, in one of the largest awards to a Danish design company for copyright infringement. The judgment also reiterates requirement of the InfoSoc Directive 2001/29 that copyright subsists when the design at issue is the author’s own intellectual creation.
