There are a number of ways in which Designs can be protected
A Design refers to the features of shape, configuration, pattern, ornamentation or composition of lines or colours applied to any article, in two or three dimensional (or both) forms. It may be applied by any industrial process or means (manual, mechanical or chemical) separately or by a combined process, which in the finished article appeals to and is judged solely by the eye.
When time and money have been spent perfecting the aesthetics of a product, you need to make sure it won’t be copied. Working with us means you’ll have the conﬁdence of knowing that your designs are in safe hands.
PATectual has a wealth of experience in the preparation and ﬁling of applications for design protection in India and globally. We often work in ﬁelds that don’t have an obvious need for design protection, and our clients have found considerable beneﬁts from including design registrations in their IP portfolio alongside both patents and trademarks.
PATectual offers services for filing and prosecuting patent applications at the Indian Design Office and internationally with the cooperation of our foreign associates or under the national phase system.
