Industrial Designs

Protection of designs and models does not ext end to the method of their manufacture, the intended use or technical effect of the object manufactured in accordance with the design and model.

No person is allowed to use a design or model registered in a valid and due manner for the purpose of distribution or commercial exploitation without the author’s or his legal successors’ permission before the end of the period of protection.

Designs and models can be registered individually or in blocks.

The number of designs or models registered in each block is only limited by their size and weight; the Government shall set out details on this point, and on the size and weight of the individual designs or models registered, by ordinance.
