PROTECTION OF DESIGNS BY MEANS OF REGISTERED DESIGNS.

Introduction

Often, it is not (only) the knowledge of how a product functions, but its distinctive design which gives the manufacturer the decisive competitive edge. In this case, it is important to protect the design of the product as well in order to deter copycats. We develop the appropriate strategy in this respect and ensure the legal protection on a national and international level, taking into account whether copyright protection is already provided and whether it is sufficient. If registered designs of our clients are infringed, we help to effectively enforce their rights. On the other hand, we also assist them in defending against legal attacks.
