Legal protection of Registered Design

Registered Design is the legal term, which also is called Industrial design right. This forms a high end protection of your newly created design.

A Registered Design includes the protection for the appearance and form of the product, but not protection of the products function or its underlying cause. With an Industrial design right no one else is allowed to produce, sell or import copies of the protected design. The Swedish Patents and Registration Office (also called PRV in Swedish - Patent- och Registeringsverket) is the responsible authority of Industrial Design Rights in Sweden. Today an Industrial design right can be applied for in specific countries and regionally. We at Gotapatent would be please to support you with counseling that gives you and your product the best legal protection. For example, if your product should be protected only in your country or in the whole of Europe if you have market competition.

Intellectual property

Intellectual property is the legal area that through law and precedents regulates the right for protection of different forms of intangible assets. Most of the legal systems admit protections for patents, brands and patterns, the rights to literary, artistic and scientific works, weapons and names. The author of an intellectual property is in general protected for a specific amount of time from duplicating or any different type of mapping.

Through our Partners we can aid you with technical and legal counseling if a litigation would occur. In the first hand, we would try to solve the conflict with peaceful negotiations and try to come to an agreement without the matter going to court. We can for example aid you with writing a potential infringer and stress the intrusion and in this way, avoid a mood procedure. This saves money for all parties involved.

Intellectual property strategies

To have the right Intellectual property strategy is of great importance for companies today. But more specific what is important? How should you proceed to maximize the use of your portfolio? In some cases, you should reconsider maybe not to develop your own product or service. Maybe it is more efficient to buy as license or even more profitable to buy a whole patent-series. All these types of questions are something that we at Gotapatent can aid you with and to counsel you in the right direction. Through our local and global partners with a lot of experience in commercial law and immaterial-legislation we can aid you with making the right decisions to maximize your success.

Brand & Domain names

A trademark is a name, a symbol and a sign that is used to identify products or services. Trademarks are a type of immaterial asset. They are often protected through a brand-protection or simply because the brand is well known to the public. Trademarks have a basic meaning for individuation of a certain company’s product for its marketing. The trademark is there for carrier of the products positive impression from the consumer. A domain name is also known as the name of an administrative frame on the internet. Organizations public services (for example: e-mail and webpages) and specific computers are often reached with the help of a domain name. Domain names are there to help people to easily remember the numeric values of IP-addresses that can be compared to as a "phone number" on the internet between different computers.
