WHAT ARE PRODUCT DESIGNS?

A Registered Design will allow you to claim ownership on any new shape, configuration, pattern or ornamentation.

Design rights can be obtained for new shapes of existing products. For example, the new shape, pattern or ornamentation of a whiskey glass.

Registered Designs could be obtained for example for new shape or appearance of a bicycle helmets; whiskey glasses; vehicle parts, components and fittings; mobile cases; furniture, pool fencing, and so forth.

If you have a Design that you think is likely to achieve great sales, then you should see our Patent Attorneys to register the design before you publish, sell or disclose the idea.

If the Design drawings that are lodged with IP Australia have the wrong detail, this will leave you with at best a “weak” case and more likely “no” enforcement case ability.

Competitors will seek advice from their Patent Attorneys whether the Design as lodged is enforceable, so it is worth having a professional Patent Attorney represent you for the process.

WHY SHOULD I APPLY?

Product Design Registration provides you with an exclusive right (monopoly) to prevent competitors from selling replicas.

The Registered Design System provides up to 10 years protection, provided that the Design Application is legally correct.

It can be extended overseas to protect offshore markets, provided that extension applications are lodged within Convention Treaty time limits.
