Design Registration Program
The regime of registration of Designs is aimed at protecting the 'appearance' of an article. It is governed by the Designs Act of 2000. There is a formal registration process to get the monopoly rights bestowed by the Designs Act. That process is similar to that set out in the Trade Marks Act. It entails an application, examination of the application, an opposition period, and payment of fees and issuing of a certificate of registration. In a fast growing commercial market like India the importance of Design protection is much realized by us and we can advise and act for you in all of your Design registration/protection related requirements/issues.
