The Australian registered designs system provides a fast and efficient mechanism for innovative companies to secure a monopoly for the visual appearance of commercially valuable products. Arguably, the Australian registered designs system is somewhat underutilised by those companies who would most benefit from its features.
To assist innovative companies in gaining a better understanding of the value of the Australian registered designs system, this Handbook provides: a quick reference practical guide to the features of the system, and a summary of Australian Designs Office decisions issued in 2017.
Please click here to access the Handbook and do not hesitate to contact any member of the Shelston IP Design Team if you are interested in learning more.
