Design Patentability Search
Design patents and utility patents are distinct types of intellectual property protection. In certain countries, design protection is referred to as “Design Patent” (e.g., USA), while in others, it is known as “Industrial Design Registration.” Design Patent primarily focuses on safeguarding the visual characteristics of an article, encompassing its configuration, shape, structure, and overall appearance.

Our experts leverage multiple professional design databases and domestic websites of individual patent offices to conduct comprehensive worldwide design searches. By employing these resources, we ensure a thorough examination of relevant designs to assist our clients in protecting their unique visual innovations and avoiding potential infringement issues.
