  • Patents
    In order to be granted a patent for an invention, the invention must be described in such detail so that a skilled person in the relevant art can perform it. Since a patent application becomes public after 18 months from the date of filing, the inventive knowledge can form part of the basis for further technological developments by third parties.

The technical function of a product is not included in the protection, but can instead be protected using a patent. Like patents, designs are national and can be obtained by application to a national patent office.
