WHAT IS DESIGN REGISTRATION? WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
We can briefly define the design registration as the right to prevent the design from being used for commercial purposes by other people without the permission of the design right holder.
WHY IS DESIGN REGISTRATION IMPORTANT?
1- Design registration and brand registration are different. By design registration, you prove that the design belongs to you in every field and prevent it from being used by others.
2- If your design is not registered, you may be subject to legal lawsuits by registering by others, you may lose reputation, and your production may be stopped and suffered economic damage. Design registration will protect you at this point.
3- You can use it in the designated areas by registering your trademark. But logo etc. Your designs can be used by changing the brand name and imitating others in different areas. DESIGN REGISTRATION will prevent the imitation.
4- You can benefit from the support of KOSGEB.
5- In many official institutions and organizations, you can give your registered design as a mortgage and guarantee, sell it, transfer it and leave it as an inheritance.
6- Registered logo product etc. With your visual designs, you can safely produce and promote without imitation.
DIFFERENT SECTORS CAN BE USED WITH A DIFFERENT NAME. Hence, LOGO AND BRAND NAME SHOULD BE REGISTERED SEPARATELY.
To make the trademark registration together with LOGO, your logo of your brand will not be registered in every field. LOGO Design and Trademark NAME Registration are different things. It must be registered with separate documents. Your brand is registered and if your logo is not registered,
If your logo is used by others with their own brands, you cannot claim any rights. Therefore, you need to register your Brand Name and Brand Logo separately.
