Design Registration in India

What is a Design?

A design is a drawing of a plan or art, either two-dimensional or three-dimensional inclusive of shapes, figures, pattern, elements, lines, patterns, or colors that depicts the look and function of any product or service. Intellectual property refers to the creative aspects of the mind, such as inventions, literary and artworks, designs, symbols, images, etc., that are protected by law. Hence, any company design will be under the company's intellectual property. Patents, copyrights, and trademarks are examples of such intellectual property.

To protect intellectual property, such as the design of a company, from any infringement or theft, the company must register its design at the Patent Office. The design registration will give the owner the legal and exclusive rights to use the design for ten years.
