Design registration in Gabon
A registered design provides a monopoly position: Your design registration gives you the exclusive right to use the design. You can take action against any identical or almost identical design. No other persons may use your registered design without your consent. In addition, they are not allowed to make or sell products to which your design is applied. If a person uses your registered design without your permission, you can seek injunctive relief or request destruction of the products concerned. Furthermore, you are basically entitled to claim damages.
