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.
Registration of designs and models starts with filing the application with the Ufficio Italiano Brevetti e Marchi (Italian Patents and Trademarks Office) (U.I.B.M.) directly or through the Chamber of Commerce. The application must be presented on special forms and accompanied by:
  •     a description (not compulsory)
  •     one or more drawings or photographs with description, if any
  •     payment receipt of government fees

Once filed, the application is examined by the U.I.B.M., which grants registration after verifying that the design or model complies with the requirements of law. As an average, three years elapse from the filing date.
