From analysis of the case it has been concluded that Stacey need to undertake a trademark initially to protect her deigns and her brand name in the future. She needs to ensure this aspect of the case law is first established.
Second to this she needs to use design law or patent law to protect her design. It should be understood that to patent the material or the method that should be used should be tangible. There should be substantial information and the method of manufacture that is used should be unique to the processes. She can use only patent law or design law but cannot use both aspects to ensure that her designs are protected. It should be noted that the people can use certain aspects in the production process unless all the methods are proven to be novel and innovative in the courts. The processes should also not cause any detriment to the societies. It should be novel, unique process. There is objective similarity that can be allowed by rival companies but they cannot blindly copy the results or the tangible efforts of Stacey.
To conclude, Stacey needs to undertake a two step process to ensure that her designs are not copied by rival companies.
