Design Registration Renewal and Restoration

In today's highly competitive business environment, protecting industrial designs is crucial for businesses to gain a competitive edge in the market. Industrial design refers to the ornamental or aesthetic aspects of an article, including the shape, pattern, and configuration. A registered industrial design gives the owner the exclusive right to prevent others from manufacturing, selling, or importing articles bearing or embodying a design that is a copy of the registered design.

Regulations Applicable To Design Registration Renewal and Restoration In India

Design registration in India is governed by the Designs Act, 2000, and the rules and regulations made thereunder. The Designs Act provides the legal framework for the protection and enforcement of industrial designs and outlines the conditions for design registration. The Designs Act defines various categories of designs that are eligible for registration, including two-dimensional and three-dimensional designs.

Benefits of Design Registration Renewal And Restoration

  • Continuation of Protection: Renewing your design registration ensures that your design remains protected from infringement. It also helps to prevent others from using your design without your permission.
  • Avoiding Loss of Rights: If you fail to renew your design registration before it expires, you may lose the rights to your design. Renewal helps to avoid this loss of rights.
  • Increased Value: A renewed design registration adds value to your intellectual property portfolio, increasing its value to potential buyers or licensees.
  • Cost-Effective: Renewing your design registration is more cost-effective than registering a new design. It also saves you the time and effort required for the registration process.
  • Restoration of Lapsed Design Registration: If your design registration has lapsed, you can restore it by filing a restoration application within six months from the date of expiration. Restoration ensures that you do not lose the rights to your design.
