Benefits of a Registered Design

A Registered Design informs the world you are the legal owner of a design or feature (product, invention) and grants you the exclusive right to freely use it (without competition) within a specific territory.


It gives you the ability to take legal action to try to stop others from copying, manufacturing, selling, and importing your design without your permission.


  • It is easier to sell or license and easier to stop people from copying your design.

  • The registration of the design often acts as a deterrent for up to 25 years.

  • The onus is on any infringing party to prove they have not infringed your rights.

  • The design is registered on IPO register in the country it was filed.
