Designs & design patents

The design is also a negative right.

A design can protect a two- or three-dimensional design or shape. An object of a design application might be, for example a hand-used device or a logo. The maximal duration is 25 years.

A short-timed property right exists in the form of the unregistered community design which provides protection for three years in the European union without the requirement of registration.
