Intellectual property, although intangible, is a valuable asset on the balance sheet of any business, and designs are an important intellectual property element. It makes sense, then, to register the shape and nature of your design, your hard work and skill, in order to protect it from unprincipled individuals or organisations who would think nothing of ‘riding your coat tails’ to a fast buck. There are a few ways to commercialise a registered design, depending on the owner’s business model.
Our Designs & Patents Commercialisation team is ready to assist you with the following matters (among others):
- Sales agreements for designs
- Licensing and royalty agreements
- Registered design assignment and transfer
