Design Patent, Copyright

Copyrights and Design Patents constitute substantial value for a business and for creative professionals. Not only “great artwork” has to be protected. Advertising materials may be protected likewise by copyright as well as the design of articles of daily use or software and data bases.

We have extensive experience in the following areas:

  • Review of protection under copyright and design law (advertising materials, websites, designs, software, data bases, etc.)
  • Registrations (national, international and EU-designs)
  • Defence of copyrights and registered designs both in and out of court
  • Enforcing rights against infringers (e.g. plagiarism), especially at trade fairs
  • Representation in confiscation proceedings by customs authorities
  • Drafting and negotiating licence agreements; licensing disputes
  • Long-standing litigation experience in all German specialised IP courts
