Designs & Copyrights
Today, the design of a product can be critical for the success in the market. The design of a product may be protected worldwide by design patents. To enforce your rights under a design patent in a dispute, the graphical representation of the product in the application will be critical. Other registered rights, such as trade marks, can also form additional or alternative means of protection, depending on the nature of the product.
Copyright and similar rights, e.g. sound carriers, database rights, films etc., "automatically" come into being with the creation of the work. Apart from such classic forms, copyright for computer software plays an important role for our clients.
We assist our clients in generating and defending their design rights and copyright, as well as in connection with licences, buy outs and company contracts.
