What is a utility model?

The Utility Model protects inventions with a lower inventive range than those protected by Patents, consisting, for example, of giving an object a configuration or structure from which some utility or practical advantage is derived.

The duration of the Utility Model is ten years from the filing of the application. To maintain the right, annual fees must be paid.
