Industrial Models and Designs

The importance of protecting industrial models and designs

In principle, every technological instrument–in transport, communications, food industry, everywhere…–goes through a process of preliminary design that demands hours, days, and years of hard work.

A legal definition presents the industrial design as “any arrangement of lines or colors, bidimensional or tridimensional, that demonstrates the manufacture of an industrial or handicraft product” and the industrial model, as “any form obtained by known tools or instruments that add a special feature to facilitate and improve their use.”

But in the paper and on the computer screen, the drawing of an innovative industrial model can be seen and even copied by anyone, to use unfairly. Sadly to say, but the industry history shows us many examples of true judicial wars between inventors or companies for the rights to an industrial model.

To avoid this, laws and treaties and even a worldwide base of designs and models have been created, which offers to industrial designs holders the necessary tools to protect the fruits of their labor and investment.

And we, in Coronell, Lam & Associates, have the technological tools and the most qualified personnel to register and protect your drawings and models, according to the parameters and requirements established in the legislation.
