A patent is an exclusivity right, granted by a Patent Office, to exclude others from making, using, selling or importing an invention throughout desired territory. The owner of the Patent may license or sell the rights defined by the claims of the patent.
Trademark is a designation of origin. As well as Patents, it provides exclusivity rights to the owner. Nobody can use, sell, import, export or provide a claimed goods and/or offer services with the Trademark sign without owner permission. Trademarks can be licensed or sell.
Design protects an appearance of a product. Nobody can make, sell, import or offer the product with the same appearance, once the Design is protected.
Utility Model Protection
Utility Model is a small Patent that is often left unexamined. It provides the same exclusivity rights as Patents. It is quick, cheap but risky protection in Europe.
