There is a myth about the design, that design can’t be searched. But the fact is design registered in India can be searched. Provided that some details are required to conduct the search if the details are not available then search is not possible. Design for any product before launching it into the market should be searched. It helps in getting the details of all similar designs registered which indirectly helps in avoiding any infringement of already registered design and un-wanted legal and financial expenditures. Design search plays an important role in pre assessment of the design sought to be registered is novel, and to ascertain the classification of product.
