TO BE UNIQUE
Aesthetics, shape, colours, as well as decorative and constituent elements of a product and its packaging are fundamental to its uniqueness.
They are the fingerprint of your product, they are those characteristics that make it unique, different and not replicable by others.
Often, the same factors are an integral part of the value of a product and it is precisely for these reasons that timely protection activity becomes decisive, to prevent third parties from using the same elements and thus diluting their uniqueness and value.
01 Before filing
Together with you, we examine the product to be protected in order to identify all the most relevant aspects that make it recognisable, unique and distinguishable from other products on the market.
