How is an industrial design trademark different?

A trademark is a sign that serves to distinguish products or services and that can include two-dimensional and three-dimensional forms.

Two-dimensional forms are eligible for protection (for example, the pattern on a tie) as are three-dimensional forms (for example, the shape of a suitcase, the bodywork of a car).
