    TOPIC: International Hague Designs: What every practitioner should know.

    The Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs (Hague Agreement) went into effect for the US on May 13, 2015. For the first time, US applicants can now file a single international design application as a vehicle to obtain design protection in a significant number of countries around the world. This may potentially reduce costs and make it easier to develop and manage a worldwide design patent portfolio.
