By registering your industrial design with the D.P.I., from the date of registration you can:
- Stake a clear claim to your creation’s origin
- Enjoy exclusive rights to the use of your creation across the national territory for a minimum of ten years
- Extend those exclusive rights to other countries
- Protect your research and development investments, by prosecuting anyone who copies your design without permission
- Generate income quickly, notably by allowing others to exploit you design commercially under license.
