COMMUNITY DESIGNS

Registration of an industrial design before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), located in Alicante, Spain, is the best and easiest way for protection of designs in the European Union. When the design is succesfully registered, the protection is spread on the territory of all member states of the European Union. The owner of the Community design has the right to use it not only on the territory of one member state of the European Union, but also on the territory of the whole union. The registration procedure is facilitated by filing of one application, payment of one fee and the Community design is examined and registered within days of a correctly-filed application. Multiple-design applications are allowed.
