Does my company need an industrial design registration?

Yes, if any or part of your company’s success depends on its intellectual property from designing eye catching products, your company should obtain an industrial design registration. Without a proper intellectual property protection strategy, your company’s existence may be short-lived. With the proper intellectual property protection, your company will have exclusive rights to the industrial design.

Industrial designs:

  • can protect you against copying;
  • can earn licensing revenues;
  • may be used as leverage in negotiations; and
  • may be used as a defence in intellectual property infringement litigation.

Lastly, research has shown that ownership of registered intellectual property significantly increases the market value of a company. An industrial design registration can become a valuable asset to your company. Get in touch with our intellectual property law firm to learn how you can make your industrial designs work for you.
