When undertaking an intellectual property audit of their business, designers often overlook registered designs. However, having your products protected by registered designs has multiple advantages.
UK registered design protects the appearance of the whole/part of a product resulting from the features of lines/contours, colours, shape, texture/material of the product itself and/or its ornamentation. In essence, registered designs protect how the products look.
Advantages of obtaining a registered design right:
Low cost. Obtaining a registered design is usually very cost-effective, and in the UK you can obtain multiple design protection under the same application for a relatively low cost.
