How Do Design Patent Applications Differ From Other Patent Applications?
Design patents are directed to the “ornamental design” of a functional product. This means that instead of protecting the function of your invention, like a nonprovisional utility patent, the nonprovisional design patent would protect the appearance of your product. Depending on your invention and targeted market, design patents may be an important part of forming a comprehensive intellectual property portfolio. In many industries such as the furniture industry and the fashion industry, design patents may be the best way to protect your invention, as well as to potentially commercialize your invention. Additionally, in some circumstances, it may be in your best interest to obtain a nonprovisional design patent in conjunction with a nonprovisional utility patent to protect your idea both functionally and aesthetically.
