¿Qué diferencia hay entre diseño industrial y modelo de utilidad?

Utility Models protect technical inventions that resolve technical problems while industrial designs only protect the external appearance of a product. The scope of protection of an industrial design does not extend to the features dictated exclusively by its technical function. For example, the protection of a design for a screwdriver will only cover the shape of the handle, where alternatives are possible, and not the tip, the form of which is determined by its function which is to fit into a screw.
