Protecting the eye-catching appearance of a product is becoming increasingly important in a wide range of technology areas as consumers choose products based on not only how well they work, but also how they look.
Registered designs provide a cost-effective and versatile way of protecting the appearance of products in all areas of technology, in both traditional fields such as consumer goods and in non-traditional fields such as computing.
We can advise on the protection of your designs, and represent your design applications at the UK IPO, EU IPO and USPTO through our offices in UK, Germany and USA. We can also arrange for protection of your designs internationally, either using the International Design registration system under The Hague agreement, or using local attorneys in each jurisdiction.
Although we may focus on registered designs, we can also advise on the use of copyright and unregistered design right to protect designs.
