Design Enforcement

Registering a design gives you ownership of the rights associated with it so if you believe that someone has copied your design or is using your registered design without your permission, then you may need to enforce your rights to maintain their value.

While many design infringements may be unintentional, it is still important to defend your design in order to protect the reputation of your brand. Quite often, a cease and desist letter sent by one of our design attorneys will be enough to stop unauthorised use, but in some cases litigation action may be necessary to protect your design rights and prevent further infringement.

A registered design is also one of the most efficient methods of preventing copycats and fake versions of your products as they can be adopted by customs officials and online marketplaces to identify and remove counterfeits more efficiently.

Stop people from copying or using your designs without your permission

The design attorneys and lawyers at Zacco are experts in design law and the enforcement of design rights. With experience managing legal cases of all sizes and complexities, we are perfectly placed to assist you with protecting and securing your designs both in and out of court.

We can enforce your designs directly in most markets, regularly handling infringements and litigation across the EU or Scandinavia, and internationally in almost all jurisdictions through our network of trusted global partners.

Design Enforcement Online

As the unauthorised use or copying of designs is increasingly taking place online, our continuous monitoring service is designed to identify and, where required, remove any infringing content. We can monitor all open parts of the internet, from websites and online marketplaces to social media and the metaverse (or virtual worlds).
