Frequently Asked Questions
What is design registration?
Design registration is a legal process that grants exclusive rights to the creator of a new and original design. It provides protection against unauthorized copying or imitation of the visual appearance of a product. Design registration focuses solely on the aesthetic aspects of a product and is not concerned with its functionality.
What are the design types?
There are several types of design, including ornamental designs (decorative or artistic in nature), product designs (the unique visual appearance or shape of a product), packaging designs (the visual design or appearance of product packaging), graphic designs (related to graphical elements), and user interface designs (the visual layout or graphical user interface (UI) elements of software), etc.
How much does it cost?
The expenses associated with Design registration fluctuate based on the specific country and the scope of services required. Usually an offer for design registration is based on the state filing fee, individual design or a group design, variants of design, priority claim, and registration fee. Our exceptional service ensures utmost transparency, offering you a competitive and predetermined fee for each application within every country.
Should I seek patent protection for my design?
If you possess a unique design that you fear might be replicated or counterfeited, it is advisable to pursue a design patent application. By filing for a design patent, you secure a 15-year period of exclusive rights to utilize the design starting from the date of filing. This protection safeguards your design from unauthorized use or imitation by others.
What are the main design registration stages?
There are 4 main stages – Filing the application, Submission of the application to the Patent Office, Registration of the design, and Maintenance (the term of design is 10-25 years depending on the country).
What is the Hague procedure?
The Hague System for the International Registration of Industrial Designs provides a practical business solution for registering up to 100 designs in 96 countries, by filing a single international application. In the same way as with trademarks, you can file applications in other countries within 6 months. The only difference is that you can still register trademarks after this period has expired, but it is no longer possible to register designs in other countries after 6 months have passed.
How to apply for priority?
If you apply for priority (according to the earlier application filed in the country-party to the Paris Convention or the exhibition priority), you are required to submit the certified copies of priority application with translation into the language of the patent office. Priority can be claimed within 6 months from the date of filing of the first application or publication at the international exhibition.

Design Patent in the UAE

 

Designs are an integral part of any product or packaging, and registering them can provide businesses with a competitive edge and protection against imitation. In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), designs are protected under the Federal Law No. 31 of 2006 on Industrial Regulation and Protection of Patents, Designs and Industrial Models.

Benefits of Design Registration in the UAE:

  1. Exclusivity: Registering a design in the UAE gives the owner exclusive rights to use and prevent others from copying or imitating the design.
  2. Market Expansion: With a registered design, businesses can expand their market and reach a wider audience, as well as prevent others from using their design in other countries.
  3. Protection against Infringement: In case of any infringement, the design owner can take legal action against the infringer and seek compensation for damages.

IP Registration Statistics in the UAE:

According to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), there were 1,177 design applications filed in the UAE in 2019, a 15% increase from the previous year.

Key Points and Requirements for Design Registration in the UAE:

  1. Novelty: To be eligible for design registration, the design must be new and have an individual character.
  2. Filing Process: The design application must be submitted to the Ministry of Economy, along with drawings or photographs of the design and a description of its features.
  3. Duration: A registered design in the UAE is valid for 10 years from the date of filing and can be renewed for two additional periods of 5 years each.
