Design protection protects the visual appearance of a product not dictated solely by functional characteristics.
Registered design protection is a very effective tool to prevent slave copying, thus preventing a dilution of your product’s distinctiveness. Designs are relatively easy to assert compared patent rights and may also help to protect useful (visible) functional features.
A patent provides its owner the right to prohibit others from commercially exploiting a technical invention in the territory where patent is in force.
Patent protection is a business tool for innovative enterprises to protect investment in the development of technology by providing exclusivity for the commercial use of new developments for up to twenty years in selected territories where the patent is in force.
