How to protect or register your product packaging?

The packaging of a product is often a first identifying sign for the consumer.

A product’s packaging can have several protectable aspects such as:

  • the three-dimensional shape of the packaging: this can be protected by design law and in some cases also by trademark law;

  • certain technical innovations in the packaging, e.g. for ease of use, keeping the product fresh, etc.: it may be possible to protect these under patent law.

  • the overall layout of the packaging (combination of form, colours, images, concept): this too can often be protected by both a design registration and a trademark registration.

Carefully chosen registrations can often prevent competitors from imitating your packaging in order to benefit from your success.
