For me, Albright offered the perfect entry into the field of IP. I find them highly responsive, savvy, proactive in their thinking, and very switched-on to understanding the client's concepts and interpreting them into highly robust patent language. A great experience all round.
How do I apply for Copyright and Design Right protection?
Copyright and Design Right protection is automatic on creating a work or design. However, you should register your design for increased protection and longer term protection.
Is there an international worldwide design registration?
Yes. It is available to UK citizens, but not to US citizens at present. However, there is a European Community System enabling a US citizen or company to obtain a single registration in all the European member states.
Do the design images have to be formal line drawings?
Not necessarily, good photographs without shadows are acceptable
