I am presenting the important duo of Intellectual Property Rights. Firstly, Industrial Designs and secondly, Copyrights as basic tools for securing property rights under a territory. Industrial design rights are granted to the creator of designs to reward them for their effort and investment in manufacturing the product. These rights enable the owner to make articles to which the design is applied or in which the design is embodied and whereas Copyright is a legal right created by the law of a country that grants the creator of an original work, exclusive rights for its use and distribution.
INDUSTRIAL DESIGNS: – A Design Patent is an important type of Intellectual property protection which is ornamental or artistic. It may consist of three-dimensional features such as the shape or surface of the article or two-dimensional features such as patterns, lines or color. By protecting an industrial design, the owner is ensured an exclusive right against its unauthorized copying or imitation by third parties for a specific period (10 years).
Design Rights provides an exclusive right and ban others from copying your product and awards certificate of ownership, and the most important aspect is that the protected products are recognized and typical in the market.
COPYRIGHTS: – Copyright protects the original literary and artistic creations of all types of authors, such as writers, composers, software developers, web designers and many other creators. In the past, copyright law was used to protect creative expressions of various kinds of papers or printer media, whereas, in the current internet era, copyright is relied upon by all types of digital content producers, distributors, and retailers.
Copyright encourages the development of culture, science, and innovation provides a financial benefit to copyright holders for their works and facilitates access to knowledge and entertainment for the public.
