Utility model abroad

In some other countries it is also possible to apply for a utility model which must be done nationally in each case since, unlike the patent, there is no European of International utility model.

It is therefore not possible to achieve utility model protection for a number of countries in Europe and outside Europe through one application. This possibility is simply not available.

However  on the basis of a utility model applied for in Germany, it is possible to apply for a patent for the invention protected by the utility model in countries in which there is not a property right similar to the German utility model.

This again makes it clear that the strategy as to how best to protect an invention needs to be well prepared, for which I will be pleased to assist you.
