¿Qué esta prohibido registrar como diseño industrial?

No design that is contrary to public order or accepted principles of morality can be registered.

Following the Guidelines of the Paris Union Convention, designs cannot be registered if they make improper use of coats of arms, flags or other emblems, signs or names or international intergovernmental organisations, or the coat of arms, flag or other emblems of Spain, its autonomous regions, municipalities, provinces or other local entities, unless said use is duly authorised.

Also prohibited are designs incorporating a trademark or other distinctive signs previously protected in Spain, and whose holder has the right to prohibit the use of the sign in the registered design.
