Design Patents Protect Appearance - Utility Patents Protect Functionality

Your contention that design patents cannot protect hidden features isn’t entirely true, see D,316,097, Tanaka et al. It’s for a Tape Drive Unit for a Tape Recorder. A purchaser of the recorder never sees that tape drive when using the tape recorder but the ruling was that the “purchasing agent” saw the tape drive when making the decision to source it in quantity for production of tape recorders.

George,

Interesting, thank you for your comment. I agree that my wording could be improved. The tape drive would be visible and of commercial concern to the person buying it for production of tape recorders, although it is hidden when “used.”
