Design Patents – How to Proactively Protect the Design and Appearance of your Product

October 08, 2020
What is a design patent? What is the process to obtain one and how can you enforce it? On this week’s episode of CalCurrent, host Dwight Kim contrasts a design patent and its more famous cousin, the utility patent. When a product’s differentiation is in its unique design and appearance, you can still seek to protect it from competitors and knock-offs by applying for a design patent.
