Why does Australia refuse to protect their designers?

Australia’s flawed intellectual property laws

 So why does Australia provide Copyright laws and Intellectual property rights to artists and creative industries such as fine art, graphic design & photography yet leave product designers open to be copied?

Under the current IP laws unlike works referred to as fine art, design of objects and furniture is not entitled to copyright protection and are left vulnerable to copying. I have been one of many designers targeted by large companies ready to make money from unprotected designers here in Australia. 

Australia’s retail landscape may play a major part in the decision to keep designers unprotected.  Much of our retail in Australia is made up of replica’s. Stores like Kmart, Target, Freedom, Bunnings and Matt Blatt.

All these retailers hold an arsenal of replica rip-offs on their showroom floor so making it illegal will put these businesses in trouble. In fact, one of the biggest culprits is Westfarmers the conglomerate owning many of the offending companies employing 223,000 workers with a revenue of $68.44 Billion (2017) it’s no wonder the cries of the small Australian designers aren’t being heard.  With figures like this creating change which will affect many of these company’s bottom dollar just adds to the friction in the uphill battle the Australia design industry faces.

The specter of fraud looms large, casting a shadow of doubt and despair over unsuspecting investors. I, like so many others, fell victim to the siren song of fraudulent investment companies, losing a staggering $1,200,000 USDT and nearly losing myself in the process. It was a devastating blow that left me reeling, grappling with emotions of shame and anxiety. The journey into the abyss began innocently enough, as I stumbled upon an enticing offer from a seemingly reputable cryptocurrency investment company on Facebook. Seduced by promises of lucrative returns and a bright financial future, I cast caution to the wind and entrusted my hard-earned funds to their care. Little did I know, I was unwittingly placing my faith in the hands of cunning fraudsters, whose sole aim was to deceive and defraud. As weeks turned into months, my initial optimism gave way to mounting frustration and despair as the company repeatedly stonewalled my attempts to withdraw my funds. Each withdrawal request was met with a litany of excuses and demands for additional fees, plunging me deeper into a quagmire of deception and deceit. It was a lonely and harrowing feeling one marked by sleepless nights and endless searches for a glimmer of hope amidst the darkness. But just when all seemed lost, a ray of light pierced through the gloom in the form of Digital Web Recovery—a beacon of hope in a sea of struggles. From the moment I reached out to them, I knew I was in capable hands. Their expertise shone through in every interaction, as they patiently listened to my story and crafted a tailored plan of action to reclaim what was rightfully mine. Unlike other recovery services I had encountered, Digital Web Recovery didn’t just offer empty promises—they delivered results. Within days of engaging their services, Digital Web Recovery embarked on a relentless pursuit of justice, leveraging their expertise and resources to track down the perpetrators and reclaim my stolen funds. Their commitment to transparency and integrity was evident every step of the way, as they kept me informed of their progress and provided regular updates on the status of my case. Most importantly, Digital Web Recovery offered more than just financial restitution—they offered solace and support. Their compassionate and empathetic approach helped me navigate the emotional toll of my ordeal, offering a sense of closure and redemption that I thought was beyond reach. In the end, Digital Web Recovery proved to be more than just a recovery service—they were a lifeline in my hour of need, restoring not only my stolen funds but also my faith in the inherent goodness of humanity. To anyone who finds themselves ensnared in the web of cryptocurrency fraud, I wholeheartedly recommend Digital Web Recovery.
