Design Law

The design law protects the aesthetically motivated, visible form of a two-dimensional (patterns) or three-dimensional (models) object.

In order to obtain protection, a design must be new and distinguished from prior forms in significant points, and it must not be contrary to public morality. In addition, the form of a model must be more than just that which would be functionally necessary for the object.

However, the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property does not examine a design for newness or distinctiveness. Swissberg will assist you in case of conflicts.
