1312.3 Space 3: Identify the Designer

 

1312.3 Space 3: Identify the Designer

 

In space 3, the applicant should provide the name of the person or persons whose creative endeavors have resulted in the creation of the claimed design.

 

The name of the employer of the designer(s) may be entered instead of the individual designer or designers if:

 

• The design was created in the regular scope of an individual designer’s employment;

 

and

 

• The individual authorship of the design is too difficult or impossible to ascribe because, for instance, multiple employee-designers contributed to the creation of the design.

 

17 U.S.C. § 1310 (G). In such cases, the applicant must check the box provided in space 3 which affirms that the design was created during the scope of an author’s or authors’ employment, and provide the name and address of the employer.
