Nullification assessment and actions
Nullification proceedings are concerned with the declaration of invalidity of a design registration. The view is held that the protection should never have been granted for reasons relating to the design itself. This may involve, for example, a design that was not novel at the time of filing, or an appearance that is completely determined by the functionality of the product.
Despite the fact that proceedings of this type can only be handled by a court in some cases, we can always be of service to you thanks to our unique combination with our own legal department.
