INVENT YOUR FUTURE™
The New Frontier of Intellectual Property
Design patent filings are increasing at a faster rate than utility patent filings, and for good reason.
Branded design is a powerful tool and a remarkably valuable asset.
From high design profile cases such as Apple v. Samsung (a 7-year fight over whether Samsung copied the iPhone) we can see the simple truth that design patents offer important protection that utility patents cannot.
Designs establish and reinforce overall brand identity. They also serve to unify the utility and trademark IP assets of an organization into a cohesive whole.
