A Powerful Business Tool: Design Patents

December 17, 2019

Intellectual Property Counsel Wendi Opper Uzar, a registered patent attorney, wrote “A Powerful Business Tool:  Design Patents” for the Sobel Co. Forensic and Valuation Services Points of Fact December Newsletter.  The article discussed recent court cases that confirmed the value of design patents as intellectual property protection. Wendi explains in the article that a design patent protects how an invention looks, or the ornamental design, as opposed to a utility patent, which protects how an invention works.  She addresses how design patents are a valuable tool for preventing or stopping competitors or knockoffs, and should be used more for protection by small to mid-size companies.  See the full article here.
