Commercial Design

By: Adv. Eli Shimony

Companies that put in their best resources and abilities may see their investment go to waste. On the other hand, companies that succeed in securing 5 years of exclusivity over a commercial design they file, may have a clear commercial advantage in a commercial environment that is challenging and competitive as it is. With the growing importance of digital culture and new media in our lives, we see more and more designs, and not necessarily industrial designs, that are also granted registered commercial designs. Eli Shimony Law Office shall assist you in registering designs for user interfaces, computer game characters, application screens, 3D simulations, and more. This is how we can enable startup companies and developers to stay in the fast lane of product development.

“A picture is worth a thousand words” is a saying that almost everybody agrees on. Every good salesman knows that “seeing is believing.” A picture, 3D simulation, video – all these have become the most efficient sales accessories for the products that we consume in our digital, connected, and information-saturated world. However, exposure to this visual information entails considerable business risk. It is actually a unique and innovative industrial design that draws attention and gets shared on social networks. Great exposure is both a marketing lever that rewards innovations and a two-edged sword that may turn your new design into an easy target for counterfeiters and forgers throughout the world.
