What is a design

The registration of a design or model gives the owner the exclusive right to use it and prevent others  from using it without his authorisation.
By "use of a design or model" we mean  all activities related to manufacturing, offer, marketing and use of the same.
In order to protect a design abroad, you must file specific registration applications, country by country. For those foreign states that have entered multinational agreements, a single registration application can be filed to protect the model in the states that have signed the agreement.

There are two procedures for the centralized filing of a design, i.e.:
  • the community registration
  • the international registration according to the cumulative procedure in compliance with The Hague International Convention
