What does an invalidation of an industrial design entail?


If a business obtains an industrial design they receive the right to request the Patent Office to invalidate other parties’ industrial designs that infringe on that entrepreneur’s rights. Cases for invalidation of industrial design rights are settled by the Patent Office through litigation. In addition to the failure to comply with the above-mentioned registration requirements, another reason for invalidating a third party’s industrial design may be the fact that its use violates someone’s personal or economic rights. This applies in particular to the use of the claimant’s distinctive signs (e.g. trade marks) in that design.
