Registered Design Rights

Design rights refer to the protection given to the shape or configuration of the whole or part of an article, including colour, texture and decoration. They are an invaluable right for designers in all fields from fashion to technology.

Designs can be registered. This provides a slightly stronger and longer lasting right than unregistered design rights.

Identify: IBB’s lawyers have experience in working with businesses across multiple sectors where the protection of innovative products is vital. We advise on the availability and subsistence of protection for products and how these rights can be best protected.

Protect: IBB can act expeditiously to prevent unauthorised exploitation of our clients’ designs. We have experience of obtaining interim injunctions to prevent infringement of our clients’ rights and routinely act in design disputes for a range of clients.

Commercialise: We have experience in advising on, and drafting documents relating to the ownership and licensing of design rights and registered designs, as well as the supply and sale of products.
