Beat Counterfeits! Register your design

Register your design, stop the manufacturing and sale of counterfeits and exploit your idea as an intangible asset: let intellectual property firm SIB take care of it.

How to fight back? Start by registering your design

Design registration is low-cost and confers exclusive rights on the product’s visible features, offering a simple and cheap defence against counterfeits.

Design registration allows the registration’s owner to:
- stop the manufacturing, sale and importation of imitations
- exploit the design as an intangible and saleable asset
- benefit from the Italian Patent box fiscal regime

Over 1.2 million design registrations were applied for globally in the year 2017 alone (WIPO figures).
