The Registered Community Design (RCD) is a unified design registration system
in European Union, whereby one registration provides protection in all member
states, and administered by the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market
(OHIM), which is located in Alicante, Spain.
The RCDs are governed by a single legal system, providing strong and uniform
protection throughout the European Union with one application for single or
multiple designs, one language of filing, one file to manage and enforceable in
all member states.
If you intend to use or protect your design in a single EU country, you may want
to register your design there. However, such registration will not prevent
anyone from copying it in other EU countries. For protecting it in more than one
EU country, you should consider filing for a registered Community design right
that is valid throughout the entire EU.
