In which countries should I apply for design protection?
The decision whether to apply for design protection is a commercial one. It generally depends on whether you intend to exploit your design in the country or may possibly wish to exploit it in future.
Even if you have no intention of using the design in a country yourself, you can consider applying for a design registration for the purpose of granting licences in that country. When applying overseas, you may use the Singapore application as a priority claim for your design application in any country which is a party to the Paris Convention or World Trade Organization (WTO).
