Can i protect my design and put a copyright protection?


Whether you have designed something for yourself or your company, even before you have created a prototype or produced the product, you will want to protect your design from other people who may think it's such a great idea, they want to copy it, in whole or in part. If your design is unique enough and promises to make you a lot of money, someone will be tempted to do the same thing, which means you need to be protected. Among the easiest and most effective ways to do that is to register your design and deposit it in a secure environment, like the one we provide at

A copyright is a sure way to protect any design, whether it's for an article of clothing, a new gadget or machine or a method for making an existing product better. By registering your design, you will establish to everyone that the design only belongs to you.  Following certain steps will protect your design and secure your rights in the United States and beyond.

How Protects Your Design ?

Copyright law protects all types of  designs and creative concepts. Legally speaking, everyone who creates something unique has a copyright. However, if someone challenges your right to ownership or infringes on your copyright, to succeed in the legal realm, you will need proof of both ownership and a date certain for creation. That means you should register and deposit your design to keep it safe.  When you make a copyright deposit through, the protection for your design starts immediately. The copyright deposit creates a record of ownership and establishes a date certain when your copyright begins. That means a copyright deposit establishes priority and serves as incontestable proof of copyright. Such a deposit serves as your official witness of your right to your creation or design.

In the United States, copyright protection is valid for life. When you make a copyright deposit of your design, it is archived with people who are under a legal obligation to provide a retention protocol for all deposited designs and other documents in a way that makes your copyright ownership incontestable. What's more, your design will be easily retrievable by you, the copyright holder at any time you need to establish your ownership rights. You will always be able to prove your rights at a moment's notice. Once you have established copyright ownership through a copyright registration and deposit through, you will be able to actively protect your ownership rights, which is very important. Your protection is also very comprehensive. When you make a copyright deposit, that protection is valid in all 171 countries that have signed on to the Berne Convention. That international protection comes standard with every copyright deposit.
