What can I do if someone infringes my design rights ?

If someone uses your design without your permission, you can accuse them of infringement. In order to take action against this infringement you can first try to contact the other party and request that it stops using the conflicting design. If this does not help, you can go to court to enforce your design rights against the infringer.

If you discover a design infringement, the best course of action is to seek advice from a specialised legal professional, for example via the Benelux association for trademark and design law.
