A utility model is an exclusive right like the patent to commercially use an invention.
The utility model allows you to quickly register protection for your invention. However, the novelty of the invention is only examined on special request. You should therefore examine the state of the art to make sure that your invention is new. Read more about how to check the novelty of an invention.
A trademark is a symbol that distinguishes the goods and services of a company. Read more about trademarks.
Design right protects the appearance of a product or a part of a product. Read more about design protection.
