WHAT IS DESIGN REGISTRATION?

In simple terms, a design is the outer appearance, shape, pattern, ornamentation or configuration of an article, either two dimensional or three dimensional, which is applied to enhance the visual appeal of an article. A design plays no role in the functionality or usefulness of the article, but merely adds to its visual appearance.
Customers are automatically attracted to the visual design and appearance of a product. The outward attractiveness of a product plays a decisive role and immediately makes the product more sellable. For this reason the manufacturers keep remodelling their articles to make them unique and eye-catching.  The visual features of a product have a direct impact on its sales and popularity and hence it is considered to be an important intellectual property of a business.
To protect intellectual property such as design of a company from any infringement or theft, the company is required to register its design at the Patent Office. The design registration will give the owner the legal and exclusive rights of use of the design for ten years.
