The design of a product plays an important role in the purchasing decision of the consumer and therefore in the commercial success of the product. Often the technical features of competitive products are very similar or even exactly the same. The consumers therefore select the products mainly based on the different appearance. A product with a new and remarkable design might therefore be preferred by the consumers and successful in the market.
However, successful product designs often attract imitators and it is therefore of utmost importance to protect these designs.
Protection for Designs can be obtained through filing before the Greek Industrial Property Organization and European Designs are filed before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). Our office provides all services related to Design protection, such as the filing of a Design and the protection thereof before the Civil Courts. It is advisable to contact us before the product is successfully brought in the market, otherwise a protection of the appearance might be precluded.
