A propos...

IS YOUR DESIGN ORIGINAL?

Who is behind this armchair?
Who may lay claim to this toy?
Did similar bags exist prior to 2002?

These are just some of the questions asked by businesses and industrial property attorneys either before a product is launched or as part of legal proceedings.

Modèle Déposé has built up a unique archive in France made up of specialist books on manufactured goods, magazines and old sales catalogues. The firm’s team of archivists undertake prior art searches in this archive which is updated on a daily basis, and travel to museums to gain a better grasp of a design’s level of originality.

MODELE DEPOSE also undertakes trademark use investigations (within the scope of actions for lapse of trademark), searching for evidence of the generic nature of a term (nullity actions), prior art searches for logos in publications and online, dating models/collections, reputation reports for models/motifs/logo histories, current market situations for unfair competition litigation, and any other documentary research related to industrial/intellectual property.
