  2. Legal right: you have a legal right over the design and can sue anybody who uses the design without your permission.
  3. Protection: Registation protects the company from imitation of design or unauthorized copying of the design.
  4. Increased in commercial value: Having a registered design gives the design owner an increase in value because of the uniqueness of the product and it can be monetized when other companies require permission for the design.
