Industrial design / What are the conditions for the protection of industrial design?
Industrial design - an independent object of intellectual property rights. In fact - industrial design - is the appearance of an industrial product that is designed to meet the aesthetic and ergonomic requirements.
The only and the most important condition for patentability of the industrial design is an absolute world novelty.
For a better understanding, we give an example: well-known form of beer bottles, the standard form of notebooks, mugs, or any other object can not receive protection as an industrial design, except if such items have obvious features, namely severshenno new-modified form, color, etc.
