來自義大利的偉士牌機車(Vespa)因其經典設計,長久以來受到全世界消費者的喜愛,在台灣或是其他國家常可以看到類似、甚至一模一樣的產品設計。但義大利都靈法院(Tribunale di Torino)於日前正式認證Vespa為一「工業設計作品」,同時也規定自1948年至今日的所有Vespa款式都受到著作權法的保護,不可抄襲。

The Court of Turin of Italy has established with a ruling that for the first time the Vespa is recognised as “Work of industrial design”, and that Vespa, in all of its variations, from 1948 to today, is protected by copyright law which in turn means that Vespa in all of its different versions cannot be copied.
