Registered Design
(Design Protection)

If you develop your own design, it can be protected with a registered design (in Germany: Geschmacksmuster). Application and registration of registered designs can be carried out either nationally (e.g. with effect in Germany), jointly (with effect throughout the European Community), or as an international registered design.

BütoklammernIn addition, the so-called "not-registered community design" provides design protection within the European Community for three years following the first date of publication, without any obligation to file an application or to pay fees.

Regardless of the variant of protection you would prefer, we are pleased to provide legal advice and take care of all formalities required.
