Christopher Carani, a partner of the law firm McAndrews, Held & Malloy Ltd. and a Research Affiliate of c∆, spoke about the recently published book he edited, Design Rights: Functionality and Scope of Protection (Wolters Kluwer N.V. 2017), at a BookIT IP Series talk at Chicago-Kent College of Law on April 11, 2018.

The book addresses the issue of functionality in the context of design rights, which has become an important aspect of intellectual property law with respect to the protection of industrial and other designs, and provides detailed country-by-country analysis and guidance on the legal issues and practical implications of functionality in 27 key jurisdictions worldwide.
