Designs can be registered to protect new features of an article's appearance. Registered designs protect features that affect how a product looks, like its features of shape, configuration, pattern or ornamentation. The design of products manufactured in three-dimensions, such as industrial or domestic goods can be protected. Some two-dimensional designs such as those appearing on wallpaper and textiles can also be registered.
