Industrial Designs

The procedures for granting patents for utility models and industrial designs and patterns are the same as those for patents, apart from the necessary differences owing to their unique features.

The owners of patents and other rights have exclusive exploitation rights in Macau and can prevent third parties from making, storing, using, importing or introducing into the market, any products that breach their exclusive rights or oppose any actions that may result in infringement. Infringement in Macau is subject to criminal liabilities.
