Your German design patent – in good hands

Registering a German design patent at the GPTO is relatively simple – but there are some points that you should consider. Take advantage of the experience of our design attorneys to protect your design patent in Germany and Europe. Before filing your German design patent application, our design attorneys will clarify the following issues with you:

  1. Can I file additional designs of alternative embodiments in a single application?
  2. Which and how many different views of each design model do I have to file, and how do I draft an appropriate classification?
  3. Do I possibly infringe earlier design rights in Germany or Europe? Can I achieve a registration of the design at all?

If you have any questions regarding a certain German design patent application or the proper classification, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be pleased to answer your questions as soon as we know about the details of your design application. Please do not hesitate to contact us.

German design patent application – things to keep in mind

Before you launch a new design, be sure to search for earlier, potentially conflicting designs. The German Patent and Trademark Office does not carry out any design search. Therefore, there is a risk that an owner of an earlier design could file a request for cancellation or send you a warning letter. Thereby, your design may get canceled, or the owner of the earlier design may claim injuctive relief and also compensation of damages.  A professional design search can significantly reduce this risk and rule out potential legal collisions with older rightholders. This is much cheaper than the cost of a warning letter or a name change. Benefit from Patworx’s many years of experience – your patent attorneys in Munich, Germany.
