Rouse provides the full range of design services from registration to the negotiation and drafting of design licences and any necessary dispute resolution.
Design rights can be both registered and unregistered. Because the nature and level of protection varies around the world, co-ordinated management of your design portfolio is critical.
We can help you through every step of the registration process, from advising on what can and can’t be protected, through to the filing and prosecution of the application.
The appearance of a product, the look and feel of it, is often unique and something worth protecting. Design registration not only protects the creator of the design, but also encourages innovation in the design world. Designs can protect the shape, pattern, colour or lines of a product or a combination thereof. A registered design is the best way to ensure protection and prevent others from using the design. It will help you distinguish yourself from your competitors and add more value to your company.
