Understand how registered designs searching can help your businesses succeed
Registered designs protect the overall visual appearance of a product.
In this workshop we will explain how registered designs work. We will show you how to use free web databases to see if this form of protection is available and suitable for your business idea. It is ideal for you if you are an entrepreneur, inventor, innovator or pre-start business with an idea or product that needs protection. You will have the opportunity to try out the databases with help from our experts and ask questions.
