Industrial Designs

In Anguilla any composition of lines or colors, any three-dimensional form or any material, whether or not associated with lines or colors, is deemed to be an industrial design where such composition, form or material gives a special appearance to a product of industry or handicraft, can serve as a pattern for a product of industry or handicraft and appeals to and is judged by the eye. The protection under this Act does not apply to anything in an industrial design which serves solely to obtain a technical result and to the extent that it leaves no freedom as regards arbitrary features of appearance.

An industrial design can be registered if it is new. An industrial design is new if it has not been disclosed to the public anywhere in the world including publication in tangible form or by use or in any other way prior to the filing date or, where applicable, the priority date of the application for registration. An industrial design that is contrary to public order or morality cannot be registered.
