Design rights, whether registered or unregistered, can often be a valuable cause of action when challenging the use of identical or similar features in products by competitors or counterfeiters.  In this series of webinars we explore:

  • The Starting Point – The protection of Designs 
    • Issues to be considered from the outset in order to achieve the correct protection with a view to defending the IP right in the future. 
  • Litigating Designs (Part I)
    • Design coverage of competitors: how to keep them on the radar and what to do against them
    • Precautionary measures: when and how to articulate them for success 
    • Means of defence and alternatives
  • Litigating Designs (Part II) – The main dispute
    • Evidence necessary to achieve good results
    • Market surveys and expert reports: are they necessary? 
    • Market surveys and expert reports: how to prepare them and what role do they play?

As there is little global harmonization of design rights, we will be holding four webinars focusing on four different regions, so we can address local and regional regimes and nuances.
