An industrial design is concerned with the appearance of a product, its shape, texture, colours and/or ornamentation.

Packaging, graphic symbols and typographic typefaces may also constitute industrial designs.

How can you protect an industrial design and how long does its protection last?

You may seek the services of a patent attorney to register an industrial design with the Polish Patent Office. A registered design is protected for 5 years from the date of its filing. The protection may be extended for subsequent 5-year periods, with the maximum term of protection being 25 years from the filing date.
