According to the Intellectual Property Law, “industrial design is the ornamental plastic form of an object or the ornamental set of lines and colors that can be applied to a product, providing new and original visual results in its external configuration and that can serve as a type of industrial manufacture”.
The requirements for the registration of industrial design are very similar to those for patents, namely: novelty, originality and industrial application. As with patents, industrial design must also have industrial applicability. In other words, it must be susceptible to industrial production.
