good design takes time, effort and talent to produce, and like any investment it should be protected. securing design registrations can help you to avoid disputes with third parties, and strengthen your position if a conflict does occur. to be validly registered, a design must be novel and have individual character. design registrations in the UK and the EU are now quicker and easier to obtain than ever, and with a grace period of 12 months following the first disclosure of the design, protection can be obtained even after your product has hit the market.

design registrations can also be used to protect aspects of your branding or product packaging. wherever there is value in shape and appearance, design registrations are an effective way of protecting your assets.
