File Professionally

It's important that a professional file for the registration of a design to ensure that the design is properly protected. An experienced professional can help significantly improve chances of successful design registration by filing a professional application, addressing all the aspects of Designs Act.

Design registration is a process and registration is provided only by the Registrar - based on the facts and premises of each case. Hence, our professionals can only make best efforts for filing of design registration application based on experience and expertise. 
 

Protection

List of all registered designs are maintained and published by the Patent Office to put competitors on notice about registration of a design and prevent counterfeiting. In case of infringement or piracy of a registered design, the owner of the registered design can seek legal remedy under the Designs Act.

Post filing of a design registration application, it is important to periodically check the status of the application until its processing on the Government side. Design registration application process sometimes requires various time-bound response or action from the applicant. Hence, it's important to continually check the status of the application and take required action until registration. 
 

10 Year Protection

Designs registered under the Designs Act are protected for a period of ten years, renewable by another 5 years. However, design registration mainly applies only to designs applied by an industrial process on any article. Hence, items that are covered under the Trademark Act or Copyright Act cannot be registered as a design.

Easy to Close

The Proprietor and the proprietorship are one and the same for all legal purposes. Hence, there is no formality for winding up or closing a proprietorship. In most cases, to close a proprietorship, only the tax registrations obtained in the name of the proprietor must be cancelled.
