How to detect the best design protection opportunities?

While in certain jurisdictions Designs can benefit protection for a limited amount of time even if unregistered, it is strongly advised to proceed with registration of Designs with the relevant Offices: registered design rights provide defined protection rights in most countries worldwide. So, how can you detect the best design protection opportunities for your specific case?

Due to the novelty requirement of design protection, it is crucial to timely involve a design professional for an optimal design protection strategy.
