Industrial Designs

Any composition of lines or colors or any three dimensional form, whether or not associated with lines or colors, is deemed to be an Industrial Design, provided that such composition or form gives a special appearance to a product of industry or handicraft. In an Industrial Design, the protection under this Act does not extend to solely achieving a technical result without incorporating changes in the appearance.

An Industrial Design is registrable if it is new and or original. An Industrial Design shall be new if it has not been disclosed to the public, anywhere in the world, by publication in tangible form or by use or in any other way, prior to filing date of the application or, where applicable, the priority date of the application for registration.
