WHY CHOOSE IPtractus AS YOUR DESIGN RIGHTS LAWYERS?
Registered design rights
What rights do we have with an unregistered and registered design?
By registering a design, the owner has a monopoly right in that design. This means that a third party cannot knowingly or unknowingly produce products that incorporate elements of the registered design so as to produce a design which “does not produce a markedly different impact on the informed user” as the registered design.
Accordingly, when your design is registered, you do not need to prove that your design has been copied to establish infringement. What you have to show is a high level of similarity between the registered design and the infringing design.
