A design right can help you prevent someone from stealing your product’s design and making money off your imagination and careful creation. Any product that is intangible form and is being sold on the market can be protected. However, intangible items, ideas, brand names are not protected by a design right.
Benefits and Advantages of Australia Design Registration
Here are the benefits and advantages of getting design registration in Australia:
• Ease of application process
• After successful registration and payment of due fees, you have exclusive rights to use, sell, or lease your design(s) in Australia.
• After six months, you can apply for the same design overseas.
• After registration comes certification. The completion of the 2-step process allows you to enforce a legal right over your design and take action against entities who are using your design without permission.
The design right lasts five years and can be renewed for another five years, only once.
