design patent

A Design patent is a form of legal protection granted to the ornamental design of a functional item. Design patents are a type of industrial design right . Ornamental designs of jewelry, furniture, beverage containers and computer icons are examples of objects that are covered by design patents. A drawing or depiction of an original plan or conception for a novel pattern, model, shape, or configuration to be used in the manufacturing, textile, or fine arts, and chiefly of a decorative or ornamental character. Design patents are issued for a period of 14 years. A design patent protects a new, original, and ornamental design for an article of manufacture. A design patent protects the look of an article. In order to be patentable, the design or the look has to be original. It is possible to file a utility patent for a new and original way an article is functioning and also file a design patent for the original design of the same article. A design patent may have only one claim that covers the whole design. A design patent application may only have a single claim (37 CFR § 1.153). Designs that are independent and distinct must be filed in separate applications since they cannot be supported by a single claim. Designs are independent if there is no apparent relationship between two or more articles.
A design patent application should include the following elements:
• title of the design
• brief description of the nature and intended use of the article in which the design is embodied
• drawings or photographs
• description of the drawings or photographs
• a single claim
• an oath or declaration
