Any new arrangement or form obtained in or introduced into objects such as tools, work implements or utensils that improve or increase the conditions for their use and their usefulness, shall be regarded as a utility model.

Protection shall be granted exclusively to the particular new form that makes it possible to increase and improve the utility and utilization of the objects for which it is intended.

Any three-dimensional form, whether or not it is associated with a line or colors that may be used as a type in the manufacture of an industrial or handcrafted product, shall be taken to be an industrial design.

Any new arrangement or set of lines or colors that may be applied, for an industrial or commercial purpose, in the ornamentation of a product by any manual, mechanical or chemical process, whether simple or combined, shall be deemed to be an industrial design.
