¿Qué es el Diseño Comunitario?

A registered community design or model gives the holder the exclusive right to use it in all European Union member states and prevents third parties for using it without their consent.

If the European Union is enlarged in the future, the scope of every registered or requested Community drawing or model would be automatically extended to include the new enlarged territory, without owners having to present a further application or pay an additional fee.

Applications can either be submitted directly to the EUIPO (personally or using the online e-filing service) or at the national industrial property offices.

The cost of registering a Community drawing/model is 350 euros, and the fees applied cover registering, publishing and postponing, and vary according to the number of drawings and models included in the application. €350 is the minimum fee for a single design.

A registered Community Design is protected initially for a period of five years and can be renewed for five year periods up to a maximum of 25 years, from the date the application is submitted.
