Design registration affords protection specifically directed at the visual features of an article, that is, the shape and appearance of an industrial article. This can be relied upon to prevent others from making, importing, using or disposing of articles within the same class and embodying the registered design or a design not substantially different from it.
Besides handling the filing of your design registration, Adams & Adams is able to handle prosecution of design applications, and the enforcement of design rights in South Africa, Africa and the world as follows:
- Infringement investigations and advice
