The Oakley Sunglasses Design Patent
The unique design of Oakley Sunglasses are protected with this design patent. These brand name sunglasses sell for over $100 a piece, setting a far gap from the cheap, average, $10 sunglasses. Although one component of its steep price is its quality and usefulness, another important factor is simply that it looks cool. Thus, this design patent allows Oakley to protect their distinguishing sunglasses design, giving them an advantage over competitors.
