Design Protection Act Amended

Several amendments to the Design Protection Act (DPA) went into effect on September 22, 2017.

The grace period for design applications has been extended from 6 months to one year. Further, proof of priority has been eased as the applicant is now allowed to submit other documents as confirmation of the details of the foreign priority application. Also, the penalties have been increased for various offenses.
