Utility Models

Technical innovations are "intellectual property". Such technical innovations can be protected against imitation by utility models. In contrast to patents, processes are not accessible to utility model protection. However, just like patents, they represent an asset. Utility models are registered after just a few weeks without a substantive examination and have a maximum term of 10 years.
