      Design Patent

      • 7 min read

      A design patent protects the way a manufactured product looks but not the way it works or how it's structured. Businesses can protect their intellectual property (IP) rights over an original design by applying for patent protection. This should be done before entering the market to prevent a competitor from copying and profiting from your design.

      When you are granted a design patent, you have the right to exclude others from using this design in personal and commercial applications. A design patent can patent everything from jewelry to packaging.

      Design Patent Eligibility

      To be eligible for patent protection, the design must also be useful. A method of creating art, such as a painting or photographic technique, cannot be copyrighted. The design must also be repeatable to qualify for patent protection.

      Instead, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issues design patents based on a wor
