Utility Models

In Germany it is possible to obtain protection for technical inventions (with the exception of methods) not only by a patent but also by a utility model. A utility model is registered without a substantial examination. Its maximum validity period is 10 years. Utility models are particularly useful when quick protection is required. We will be happy to explain the pros and cons of a utility model application in an exhaustive counselling session and will develop a protection strategy tailor-suited to your needs.
