Registered design protection

Introduction to registered design protection

.

Registered Design protection is granted on the basis of purely visual representations of the design in question. To be registered, a design must be new, have individual character and be visible to the eye during normal use of the design.

.

A twelve month grace period is available which allows a design to be publicly disclosed prior to filing an application for the Registered Design. We recommend that an application is filed at the earliest opportunity to ensure that a third party does not obtain an earlier filing date for the same or similar design.

.
If you would like to discuss the suitability of your design or file an application to register your design then contact our expert team today.
