Stanford Technology Law Review - Design Patents in the Modern World

Design patents have become an important topic in US patent law. Formerly viewed as the "weak sister" of utility patents, the large damage awards in design patent infringement cases such as Apple v. Samsung have a way of changing everybody's mind.
