As per the Indian law, design refers to the aesthetic value of any article. It basically covers the features of shape, configuration, pattern, ornament or composition of lines or colors applied to any article whether in two dimensional or three dimensional or both forms, by any industrial process or means, whether manual, mechanical or chemical, separate or combined, which in the finished article appeal to and are judged solely by the eye, but does not include any mode or principle of construction or anything which is in substance a mere mechanical device, and does not include any trademark or property mark or artistic work.
Design Registration in India is governed by the Designs Act, 2000. A design application can be filed in the form of an ordinary application or a convention application within 6 months of the priority date. A design registration is valid for 10 years and may be renewed for a further period of 5 years. Usually, it takes about 6 – 10 months to obtain a design registration in India. A registered design can also be cancelled in case it has been previously registered in India or published in India or in any other country prior to the date of registration, is not an original design or is not registrable or defined under this Act. Make sure you take help from the Best Law Firm in India for an error free paperwork.
Registration of design allows the owner to prevent third parties from making, selling or importing articles bearing or embodying a design which is a copy of protected design. Owners of registered design can take action for enforcement in a court of law.
Geographical Indications (GI)
Geographical Indication (hereinafter referred to as “GI” for the sake of brevity) refers to a sign that is used on products that have a specific geographical origin and possess qualities that are due to that origin. Basically, the qualities depend on the geographical place of production and there is a clear link between the product and its original place of production. The right of GI is conferred upon a community as a whole which is producing, manufacturing or growing the indigenous products, handicrafts or even food items. A GI right enables the owner to prevent its use by third party whose product does not confirm to the applicable standards. GI is mainly used for agricultural products, foodstuffs, wine and spirit drinks, handicrafts and industrial products.
GI rights can be enforced in a court of law. The most important requirement for registering a GI is that the product needs to have an established link with the geographical origin that maybe determined either by quality, reputation or other characteristics. Protecting GI is essential even from the perspective of preventing its registration as a trademark by a third party and to limit the risk of indication becoming a generic term. GI enables a business to have a competitive advantage, add more value to the product, benefits the community as a whole against fake and counterfeits and increase export opportunities along with strengthening the brand.

Trade SecretsTrade secret usually refers to a practice, process, design, instrument or compilation of data or any kind of information that provides a business or an enterprise competitive advantage or an edge over its competitors. It is not known to the public at large and essential characteristic of trade secret is that the owner takes reasonable steps to keep the same confidential. In India there is no specific legislation to protect trade secrets but there are certain principles based on equity that have been devised by Indian courts over a period of time that revolve around breach and infringement of contractual obligations by which the parties may be mutually bound. For instance, the Indian Courts have upheld a restrictive clause in a technology transfer agreement, which imposes negative covenants on licensee not to disclose any information received under the agreement for any purpose other than that agreed in the said agreement. Apart from contracts, parties even resort to legal documents such as Non-Disclosure and Confidentiality agreements that can be invoked in a court of law in case of breach. We at Knowledgentia one of the Best ipr law firms in Delhi provide expert services with respect to safeguarding trade secrets through drafting appropriate legal instruments customized to the unique and specific needs of our clients.
