Copyright protection is intended to protect the original expression of an idea in the form of a creative work, but not the idea itself.
It covers creations of the mind of different kinds, such as literary, artistic, educational, or musical works, software programmes, databases, …
In principle, a creation of the mind does not need to be registered through specific administrative procedure or any other formalities to be protected: when the work is created, the copyright protection exists automatically. However, in some countries, registration procedures are necessary to benefit from copyright protection.
Design protection can cover a wide variety of products provided their appearance is new and has individual character. The protected visual appearance can be the lines, contours, colours, shapes, textures and/or materials of the concerned goods.
The appearance of a product can be valuable because it differentiates your business from those of your competitors and constitutes a purchase incentive for consumers. Investing in design protection is a real means of increasing the value of your company and products.
