Design prosecution makes it possible to protect the individual appearance and character of a new product. At Zacco, we can help you register a design and use it as a complementary protection for patented products – and as a key instrument in your branding strategy.
You can protect a design regardless of whether the underlying product is functional or mainly ornamental. To qualify for protection, the design must be novel and have individual character. However, there are exceptions to the novelty requirement since many countries – for example all EU member states – allow a certain grace period. We can help you assess this.
