Design patent is the manifestation of the appearance of an article and also the combination of surface and configuration setup of the article. Mostly inventors are interested in protecting the function of the article rather than the design of the article but in this era of Intellectual property rights where in organizations are using it as one of the most powerful resources for monetizing purposes. Design patents are of most imperative value to them. Earlier Design patents have always been the underutilized patents set compared to utility patent They always been easy to obtain, indeed far easier to obtain than a utility patent but when the question comes in terms of coverage and in depth search many free tools have failed in getting the relevant data.
It is recommend to perform a search covering previous designs and gain information on registered designs prior to filing a design application. Searching design patents has always been a difficult nut to crack for the searchers and analysts. Getting Design Database from various countries in one platform in English is very difficult. We can search individually in each national website but searching for multiple countries is cumbersome job since free databases do not allow multiple countries searches with one statement and hence it becomes time consuming.
