What is Worth Copying is Worth Protecting: Applied Art and the Evolution of Danish Copyright Law

    A Danish Supreme Court decision from 1907 (U.07.619) - involving a classic Royal Porcelain coffee pot designed by Arnold Krogh - affirmed that there was no protection under Danish copyright law for a work of applied art. The following year the Danish Government changed the copyright act, and the Danish design industry has since enjoyed legal protection. This chapter is a study of the ways in which Danish courts have, over the past hundred years, interpreted copyright law so as to extend legal protection to radical and experimental design objects, unimagined in 1908.
