Design Patent Law for Visual Artists and Fashion Designers

with James Juo, Esq. & Scott Hansen, Esq.

Design patents protect the look of products, from designer shoes to movie merchandise, sports cars to tire rims, and can even include what appears on your computer screen. Aesthetic design can be as important as its functionality when it comes to commercializing a product. This workshop will provide a brief overview of design patents, and compare design patents with trademark and copyright protection.

James Juo, Esq. is a registered patent attorney, and a partner with
the law firm of Fulwider Patton LLP in Los Angeles. His practice includes advising clients on the scope and validity of patent and trademark rights, as well as litigating on their behalf. He was featured on the cover of the November 2009 issue of Los Angeles Lawyer magazine in connection with his article “Eye of the Beholder” on design patent infringement. Earlier in his career, Mr. Juo served as a patent examiner at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in the technology area of television and facsimile machines.

Scott Hansen is an intellectual property attorney and partner with the law firm of Fulwider Patton LLP in Los Angeles. Mr. Hansen works for a wide range of clients extending from medical device companies to the entertainment industry, and has worked on trademark and patent matters for celebrities. He serves as Chair of a Committee of the IP Section of the State Bar, and is on the Board of Directors of the LA Intellectual Property Law Association.
