Drawings – Administrative management


Administrative management

Are your drawings and models correctly managed?

The administrative management for drawings and models is particularly delicate.

Filing formalities are a priori relatively simple but require a certain degree of rigor, otherwise your drawing and model risks rejection. Furthermore, the choice of graphical representations accompanying the filing is essential in order to provide you with the widest and most effective protection possible. When your filing dossier is being constituted, the slightest detail is important because each one of them can play a major role in a subsequent confrontation with a possible counterfeiter, or in the event your rights are challenged by a third party. Our experience in terms of disputes makes it possible to anticipate the risks of rejection or dispute and will provide you with optimum protection.

Laws, which differ from one country to another, impose complex administrative formalities, in particular compliance with many deadlines and the payment of taxes. Failure to comply can result in the loss of your rights, and generate substantial extra costs.

Not taking a transfer, merger or other change into account at the time of renewal every 5 years can also result in serious legal consequences as to the validity or opposability of your title.
