Protect it, or forget it. Design, that is! Why? Only good design gets copied so many designers may run the risk of their IP being infringed.
Designs protect the way things look. There are different types of protection available for designs. Registered design rights are offered at the IPO but there are also unregistered rights and European design rights.
The IPO Campaigns and Education team have had the pleasure to work with both when promoting IP to schools, as well as Shaun the Sheep!
