PatSnap Innovation Academy course: How do design rights work?
About this course
Design rights are IP’s best kept secret. When utilized correctly, they are extremely effective at stopping similar products. However, they are often ignored or overlooked by potential infringers and the types of rights conferred vary significantly in different jurisdictions. In this course we join Rosie Burbidge, Intellectual Property partner at Gunnercooke LLP, and author of ‘European Fashion Law: A Practical Guide from Start-Up to Global Success.’ This course explores what design rights are, the types of design rights available in Europe, how to file for registered design rights and why they are useful. We investigate the differences in the protection of design rights in other regions. This is an intermediate level course and takes about one hour to complete.
