A full summary of this case has been published on Kluwer IP Law.

The Patent and Market Court of Appeal upheld the first instance Court’s judgment, confirming that a motorboat could be protected by copyright as a work of applied art, and that this copyright had been infringed by the defendant. The Court also confirmed that as a starting point copyright always belongs to the physical creator and that if there is doubt as to whether a transfer has taken place the interests of the creator normally prevail.
