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.
