Registered Designs


Are you in an industry that creates new designs? For any company who produces unique and innovative designs, formally registering your designs can protect your innovative features which may be crucial to your commercial success. Registering designs through the UK or EU is cost effective and grants the owner protection of the appearance of the whole or part of a product resulting from the features of, in particular, the lines, contours, colours, shapes, texture and/or materials of the product itself or its ornamentation.

Long term, formal protection. Registered design rights give the owner protection for up to 25 years and means that the scope of protection is extended from, not only direct copying, but to any design which does not produce on the informed user a different overall impression.

How we can help. Tennant IP Ltd. can file applications for any applicable design and can offer advice on how best to file applications in order to maximize the protection of your rights, as well as defending your rights against copiers and infringement. If you are not sure about what can or cannot be registered, or simply want to talk further about the benefits of design registration, please get in touch by using the contact details on the Contact Us page.
