BECAUSE “PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE”
Do you sell consumer goods (interior design, fashion, jewellery, toys)? Do you want to be regularly kept up to date about the designs recently registered by your competitors?
Our preventive newsletter is a great way of preventing design infringement. It offers a manufactured goods monitoring service unique in France.
The monthly newsletter enables you to check out designs that have just been filed with industrial property offices, and new products featured in the press and likely to be covered by copyright, in several product categories.
Every month, our team of archivists do the following:
- Views the drawings and designs published the previous month by INPI (France), EUIPO (Europe) and WIPO (international) in the relevant categories.
- Carefully selects which products to include – on-trend products, original products, easy-to-replicate items, filing companies, particularly if they are involved in legal disputes.
- Creates a “new products” section in which new products are featured from general interest (Vogue, Glamour, ELLE Décoration, IDEAT…) and trade magazines (C+ Accessoires, Table & Cadeaux, La Revue du Jouet …). The products are likely to be covered by copyright regardless of whether they are registered.
- Sorts the information by product type and carefully presents the information in order to make it reader-friendly.
