I am a designer: what do I need to know about IP?

"Design rights deal with the way things look and with the appearance of a manufactured design. There are two categories of protection for design: unregistered and registered design rights. For any of these rights to arise, there needs to be a 'design' that is 'new' and has 'individual character'."

Online Community Developers Shape Digital Landscapes

"Like twentieth–century architects and town planners, online community developers shape digital landscapes, but successful online communities also need a purpose, people and policies. In millions of online communities people meet to debate baseball scores, compare child–birth experiences, get information about stocks, and ask for consumer advice. People create communities by their presence or absence, their behavior and personalities, and so do moderators and others with special roles. Developers can't control what people do but they can influence them by defining purposes and policies. Designing software that is consistent, predictable, easy to learn and supports how people want to interact has an impact too. Supporting social interaction (i.e., sociability) and human–computer interaction (i.e., usability) can produce thriving online communities instead of electronic ghost towns. Many developers design software, thinking they are designing communities. Meanwhile, keen–eyed, reflective sociologists describe the emergence of communities. But communities are neither designed nor do they just emerge. Like physical communities they evolve and change over time."
