Design registration - the Keltie difference

At Keltie, we approach filing design registrations differently. We could simply take your photographs or detailed drawings of your product, organise the necessary elements and process it. However, in most cases this would not give you the most effective protection for your product, and could leave you vulnerable to competitors capturing the aesthetic essence of your product while changing details to avoid infringement.

 

We add value to our clients by getting involved at the early stages of a design project, and developing a strategy that captures and protects the aesthetic essence of a product. We advise on a spectrum of design protection to ensure breadth and strength of your rights, working to your priorities and expectations. Our registered design rights are designed to be used - to give real commercial value and market advantage.

 

In conjunction with a design strategy, we can work with you to obtain drawings for a design filing. We can co-ordinate with a specialist draftsperson, or we can give you our expert advice on how to produce the best imagery for your application: developing quality line drawings, and disclaiming the unnecessary features of a design in order to focus the scope of the application more effectively.

 

With Keltie’s expert design attorneys, you and your creation are in good hands.

UKIPO Requires UK Address for Service for International TMs and Designs

Following the recent decision of the Appointed Person (AP) in Tradeix Ltd v New Holland Ventures Pty Ltd BL (O/681/22) (Marco Polo Case), the UKIPO will now require a local address in the UK (or in Gibraltar or the Channel Islands) before any formal serving of documents in contentious proceedings relating to UK designations of International trade mark or design registrations. Failure to provide a UK address for service may result in a challenged registration being cancelled or an opposed trade mark being treated as withdrawn.
