Design Patent Protection

Protect the Unique Look of an Item.

A design patent protects the unique look, shape, or form of an item. You would generally apply for a design patent if the item you are protecting has a novel and valuable appearance. In some cases, design patent protection is appropriate when you have improved upon an already existing product through a unique change in its look, shape, or form, i.e., an aesthetic improvement.
