The project aims firstly to understand each country and region’s system for identifying/indicating protected designs beyond the official design register or gazette. Additionally, the project will identify any information that each Partner Office, within its possible range, collected and recorded regarding how often the indications are utilized, and highlight any beneficial effects of clear indications for protected/registered designs (Phase 1). It also aims secondly to enhance the beneficial effect of design rights in ID5 partner countries and regions, while alternatively contributing to extensive promotion of the design system per se (Phase 2).
To deepen mutual understanding of the indication system for registered designs and to share the recognition concerning the beneficial effects of the indication for registered designs among the ID5 Offices. (Phase 1)
To establish the common registered design mark indication system. (Phase 2)
