When one relies on the aesthetic appeal of his products to sell them and gain a competitive edge over his competitors, he would most likely be concerned with preventing them from copying his product designs. That is why filing for Industrial Design is essential in ensuring that the design of the products remains exclusive.
In Malaysia, Industrial Design registrations are governed by the Industrial Design Act 1996 and Industrial Design Regulation 1999. Under this Act, the owner of a registered design is given the exclusive right to make, import, sell or hire out any articles to which the design has been applied, as well as the power to give or withhold consent from other parties who want to use the design.
All Industrial Design-related services are handled by Intellect Patent & Innovation Sdn Bhd (IPISB), which is a member of the Intellect Group of IP Companies.
