WHAT IS A PATENT?
The Registration of a Patent is a certificate that gives the owner the exclusive rights over what has been registered. It prevents others from making, selling or using it without the consent of the owner. On the other hand, the patent is made available to the general knowledge of the public.
The right given by a Patent is not so much the right to make, to offer in the market and to use the object of the Patent –a right that the owner can always exercise- but especially “the right to prevent others” from making, using or introducing in the market the product or process that has been registered.
The patent is valid for twenty years starting to count from the date of the application. In order to keep it valid it is necessary to pay annual fees from the moment it has been granted..
WHAT IS A UTILITY MODEL?
The Utility Model protects inventions with a lesser degree of inventiveness than those protected by patents. It can consist of giving an object a configuration or an structure from which it comes some useful or practical advantage.
The Utility Model registration is valid for ten years starting to count from the date of the application. In order to keep it valid it is necessary to pay annual fees from the moment it has been granted.
WHAT IS AN INDUSTRIAL DESIGN?
The Registration of an Industrial Design grants the owner the exclusive right (to use it and to prevent others from using it without his authorization) concerning the appearance of all or of a part of a product, that is derived from the characteristics of, particularly, the lines, the edges, colors, shape, texture or materials of the product in itself or in its ornamentation. The designs can be two-dimensional or three-dimensional.
The Industrial Design registration is valid for five years starting to count from the date of the application. It can be renewed every five years up to twenty-five years since the beginning of the process.
WHAT IS A TRADEMARK?
The registration of a Trademark is a certificate that grants the exclusive right to use a sign in order to identify a product or a service in the market. The following can be considered trademarks: words or combinations of words, images, figures, symbols, graphic designs, letters, numbers, three-dimensional forms (wrappings, containers and forms of the product or its representation.
WHAT IS A COMMERCIAL NAME?
A Commercial Name is a certificate that grants the exclusive right to use any sign or denomination as an identifier of a company in business transactions. The commercial names, as certificates of industrial property, are separate and independent from the names of the companies registered in the Mercantile Registries.
The duration of the protection granted by the Distinctive Signs is ten years starting from the day of the application and they can be renewed indefinitely. In order to keep them valid the payment of a fee is required (the trademarks in transitory process have a different regulation that requires consultation).
SELLING OF TRADEMARKS
The growing demand to sell or license a registered trademark has made us offer this service to our clients. We facilitate the exchange of information between some of our clients who are willing to sell a trademark and those interested in buying it.
