Patents and Trademarks

Contra Vision Ltd owns the Intellectual Property Rights to over 30 inventions, in addition to Trade Marks in over 20 countries worldwide.

These inventions include the two so-called dominant patents which together encompass every type of see-through window graphics, however they are made, the first in the patent family of GB 2165292, having a design superimposed on an opaque “print pattern” (“silhouette pattern”) and the second in the patent family of EP 0880439, having a design superimposed on a translucent print pattern, the latter being capable of being backlit, hence the trade mark Contra Vision® BACKLITE™.

Individual “finished products” are typically independently protected by one or more “improvement patents” typically related to the method of production.

Contra Vision continues to innovate and apply for patent protection for its inventions.
