Industrial design refers to the aesthetic or visual properties that distinguish products or commodities and help them stand out in the eyes of consumers. Unique industrial design makes products recognizable and can help capitalize on earned goodwill for a brand. Industrial design can be protected. Our clients rely on us to provide that protection, coordinated through Canadian and international legal systems.
The Intellectual Property Law Group at Perley-Robertson, Hill & McDougall provides a full range of professional, legal and agency services relating to industrial designs, including preliminary searching for conflicting designs, as well as drafting, filing, and prosecution of industrial design applications. We also provide opinions on the registrability of industrial designs, validity, title and infringement, as well as litigation where necessary.
