<要旨>
経済のグローバル化が進展する中で,企業の競争力にとってデザインの保護,流通,活用が重要な戦略となりつつある.一方で,日本のデザイン保護法制,特に意匠制度は,必ずしもこうした状況に合致していないとの意見がある.今後,国際出願制度への加盟や,よりユーザーの競争戦力に合致した制度改正,さらに総合的なデザイン政策を進める必要がある.
<Abstract>
As economic globalization continues to rise, the protection, distribution, and effective use of designs are all becoming important strategies enabling corporations to maintain their competitive advantages. This article examines whether the Japanese design-protection system is properly aligned with users facing this current global situation. Going forward, further steps are needed in establishing an overall design policy that includes, for example, participating in systems designed to accept international design applications; and revisions to the system so it can meet the need for users to better compete in the global market.
