Designs provide protection for the appearance of an article…

Specifically aspects of shape, configuration, pattern and ornamentation of the article.

Like patents, protection is afforded over a limited period of time. However, protection is relatively narrow, so it is important to ensure the design registration is obtained for the product actually going to market, not an earlier version.

At Dark IP, we assist our clients with the preparation and filing of design applications in Australia and New Zealand.
