Through past experiences I have found that clients developing a new product are often aware that, to prevent others from copying their product, they need to acquire patent protection. Many of them, however, have not even heard about registered design protection which, in some cases, may provide them with an even stronger enforceable right to prevent potential competitors from manufacturing, using, selling or importing a similar product. The aim of this article is to provide more insight into the differences between registered design protection and patent protection.
