"DESIGN IS INTELLIGENCE MADE VISIBLE. IT MUST BE PROTECTED"
The Design Act, 2000 and Copyright Act 1957 protect the right of the original proprietor of designs and also deals with the assignment of rights to the subsequent owner. The Assignment Agreement helps two parties to transfer the intellectual property rights to another for the development of the product and also for the commercial purpose. The Assignment Agreement of Designs is dealt with by Section 30 of the Design Act with Rules 32-35 of Design Rules, 2001.
