Renewal of design registrations
Given that a renewal of your design registration may take place some time after the filing of your design, our design attorneys will be pleased to arrange a consultation with you prior to the renewal to examine whether the design registration data are still up-to-date and whether renewal is desirable.
If a design registration is not renewed in a timely manner, the rights will lapse and you as the design holder will lose the protection. Due to the required novelty, it is not possible to file the design again. It is therefore very important for you to be reminded of the renewal in good time so that action can be taken. Arnold + Siedsma can relieve you entirely of this concern.
Using our own electronic design management system, we inform our clients in good time of the approaching renewal date or the expiry of the maximum term of protection. Every design which is filed by us or for which we assume responsibility is automatically entered into this management system.
