Utility model example case

Initial situation:

A fitness product is characterized by a particular design and also has technical features which facilitate its use.


The technical features of the product are also to be protected which, according to the experience of the applicant is a seasonal product and should be marketed for two to three years.


Since the assumed marketing time of the product of two to three years has clearly predefined the aim, and protection was only required for Germany, and the applicant as an industry insider had precise knowledge of the prior art, application should be made for a utility model. After drawing up the application, this was filed at the German Patent and Trademark Office and registered by the Office as a utility model. The proprietor of the utility model has thereby obtained the desired protection from imitators and can also decide to maintain this protection up to the maximum term of the utility model of 10 years, that is far beyond the previously assumed marketing time.
