All our products under the three brands STRAIGHTS, Flash Up and Danish Fuel are protected by copyright law RCD (Registred Community Design).
The Community Design Regulation (Council Regulation (EC) No. 6/2002 of December 12, 2001) creates two forms of Community Design—unregistered and registered. The Unregistered Community Design (UCD) system, which came into effect on March 6, 2002, gives automatic protection without the need for registration. UCD protection lasts for three years and is very useful as short-term protection for designs that have not been registered. The Registered Community Design (RCD) system came into effect on April 1, 2003, with a sunrise period that began on January 1, 2003. An RCD can last for up to 25 years.
