Design protection abroad outside Europe

If it is found that protection for the design is required in individual countries outside Europe, making one or several national applications at the respectively competent national office is the correct procedure.

The term of the design right thus achieved is then determined by the national regulations of the respective country and is, for example in the USA, usually 15 years, and is also designated there as a design patent.

International application for your design

In addition to the application for the design in individual selected countries as a respective national application, an international application can also come into question. You can find further details here.

I shall be pleased to work out which application strategy is the most appropriate in discussions with you. Find out more about my previous activities.
