Design (patent) FAQ*
What is industrial design?
An industrial design may consist of three-dimensional features, such as the shape of an article, or two-dimensional features, such as patterns, lines or colour.
What kind of protection does an industrial design right offer?
The owner of a registered industrial design or of a design patent has the right to prevent third parties from making, selling or importing articles bearing or embodying a design which is a copy, or substantially a copy, of the protected design, when such acts are undertaken for commercial purposes.
What kind of products can benefit from industrial design protection?
Industrial designs are applied to a wide variety of products of industry and handicraft items: from packages and containers to furnishing and household goods, from lighting equipment to jewellery, and from electronic devices to textiles. Industrial designs may also be relevant to graphic symbols, graphical user interfaces (GUI), and logos.
How long does industrial design protection last?
Industrial design rights are granted for a limited period. But it amounts at least to 10 years.
What is the difference between an industrial design right and a patent?
An industrial design right protects only the appearance or aesthetic features of a product, whereas a patent protects an invention that offers a new technical solution to a problem.
What conditions must be met to obtain industrial design protection?
An industrial design is considered to be new or novel if it has not previously been disclosed to the public and it may be considered original if it significantly differs from known designs or combinations of known design features.
Is the industrial design protection granted in one country valid in every country?
Industrial design rights are territorial. This means that these rights are limited to the country (or region) where protection is granted.
How can industrial design rights be obtained in other countries?
In order to obtain protection in other countries, an application for the registration of an industrial design or for the grant of a patent for an industrial design must be filed in each country where protection is sought, in accordance with the law of that country.
How are industrial designs relevant to my business?
The design drives consumer’s choice: the appearance of a product can be a key factor in the consumer’s purchase decision. In other words, the success or failure of a product may rest, at least partially, on how it looks. Industrial designs can, therefore, be very important for both small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and larger companies alike, regardless of their sector of activity.
What are the advantages to my business of protecting my industrial designs?
The protection of industrial designs should form an integral part of any business strategy. The main reasons to protect industrial designs are the following:
Return on investments: Protection contributes to obtaining a return on investments made in creating and marketing attractive and innovative products.
Exclusive rights: Protection provides exclusive rights for at least 10 years, so as to prevent or stop others from commercially exploiting or copying the industrial design
Strengthen brands: Industrial designs can be an important element of a company’s brand. Protecting industrial designs contributes to protecting a company’s brand.
Opportunity to license or sell: Protection provides rights that may be sold or licensed to another enterprise, which will then be a source of income for the owner of the rights.
Positive image: Protection helps convey a positive image of a company since industrial designs are business assets, which may increase the market value of a company and its products.
Reward: Protecting industrial designs rewards and encourages creativity.
What happens if I don’t protect my industrial design(s)?
If you don’t protect your industrial design(s) then you may not enjoy exclusive rights to them. Consequently, your competitors may take a product to market, incorporating your industrial design, without getting your permission and you have no legal means to fight them. Your design can be sold to your competitor and lower cost. This could reduce your market share for the product in question and be harmful both to your firm’s reputation and to that of your products.
