CIPO: It’s All in the ‘Look’. Why Industrial Designs Matter.

October 11, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Presented by Nicolas Deziel from the Canadian Intellectual Property Office Bank of Speakers.

Has your keen eye for detail led to the development of a more appealing and innovative design of a product we use every day? If your product’s new look stands apart from its competitors you may have a registrable industrial design on your hands! Learn what you can register as an industrial design and how. Your business can gain a marketing advantage by using your protected industrial design. So be creative—get your designs out there for others to enjoy!

A special note: if you attend this session and wish to discuss particulars of a design you are working on, do NOT disclose any specifics during the open session—you’ll learn why during the seminar!
