The theory of „unity of art” is based on the refusal to make any distinction between „pure art” and „applied art”, conception which led to a sui generis regulation of the applied art and to the protection by copyright of the applied art. However, the current case law of the CJEU tends towards the selective protection of applied art, which requires a new legal perspective.
