The Vocabulary:

Protected Design

The design of an object - that is, its appearance, contours, color, form and surface structure - can be protected by a "design patent".

The targeted design of your products can achieve a positive image transfer for your company. This affords you easier market access and creates a more distinctive "buying experience" for your customers, helping them to identify with your company. If your design is not protected, others can profit from your investments.

We apply for German, European and international design patents, appraise potential infringements and represent you in infringement proceedings.
