I wish to express my sincere thanks to Adrian Hocking, Partner at Albright Patents LLP as well as his Personal Assistant, Ms. Lynne Horton. As an overseas client, I can truly say that both Adrian and Lynne were extremely supportive throughout my patent applications process. I particularly found Adrian to be diligent, tenacious, clear, concise, commercially aware, patient and extremely easy to communicate with. As a result of the support of Adrian and Lynne, I have successfully obtained two patents. I am truly grateful for all of their efforts and I fully intend using the services of Albright Patents again within the not-so-distant future.

How do I apply for Copyright and Design Right protection?
Copyright and Design Right protection is automatic on creating a work or design. However, you should register your design for increased protection and longer term protection.
What happens if other countries join the EU?
This is called enlargement. The design protection will automatically extend to the new countries.
Do the design images have to be formal line drawings?
Not necessarily, good photographs without shadows are acceptable
