Utility models

The utility model is regarded as the “little brother” of the patent. Technical inventions that are novel and inventive and have an industrial application can be protected by a utility model, as by a patent. The utility model is an unexamined right. It is entered in the register without a substantive examination for protectability by the German Patent and Trademark Office. In Germany, the lifetime of a utility model is a maximum of 10 years.
