applied art work is contain two elements (useful elements and artistic elements)
The Saudi copyright law protect applied art, however, it is not clear on whether it protect both elements (useful aspects of the work AND the artistic aspects) or is it only the artistic element?
I think it covers both however; I want to suggest ways in which the law could be amended so as to be clearer regrading this matter.
So the First page will be suggestions to the saudi law to be clearer regarding this matter (applied art) se we can know does the law protect both elements or only artistic element
Also I want to recommend that the law should only protect the artistic elements of the work and give reasons
for example, One of the reasons is that protecting useful aspects will deter progress of science
the second page will be about the recommendation to protect only the artistic aspects without the useful elements and give reasons
