The United States protects product design through a number of different intellectual property disciplines, including copyright, trade dress, and design patent law. Each IP discipline comes with benefits and disadvantages for a product designer. Some IP rights are easier to acquire than others, and some have broader enforcement possibilities. Given the ease with which product design can be copied or mimicked, questions concerning design protection are at the fore of IP considerations for many companies.
