Design

Businesses seeking IP protection for new products will generally focus first on trademark or patent rights; however, for certain products, design rights can provide a simple and cost-effective means to protect and enforce an innovative shape, appearance or ornamentation. In particular, design protection may be recommended for products that use design to differentiate themselves in their market. Design rights can protect the shape or appearance of an object, such as an item of clothing, a new mobile phone handset, a new coffee maker or an innovative form of packaging. The right protects the design feature – for example, its shape or appearance – rather than its function.
