How did the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court (IPEC) approach claims of copyright and unregistered community design infringement in a case involving the alleged copying of a designer’s fabric sample? In John Kaldor Fabricmaker UK Ltd v Lee Ann Fashions Ltd  EWHC 3779 (IPEC),  All ER (D) 238 (Nov), the claimant and the defendant were both companies engaged in the fashion design business. The claimant had supplied the defendant with a sample of fabric. It brought proceedings, alleging that the defendant had breached its copyright and community design right by copying the design of the claimant's sample fabric to create an altered design later used for dresses sold by Marks & Spencer (M&S). The IPEC, in dismissing the claims, held that, on the evidence, the defendant had not copied the claimant's design in the fabric sample supplied to the defendant.
