A design is the visible form of a two-dimensional (patterns, such as fabric designs) or three-dimensional (models such as tooth brushes or locomotives) object. The uniqueness of a design is achieved through the use of lines, contours, colors, surfaces and materials.
The owner of the right to a design can prohibit others from using products with the same or similar design for commercial purposes, i.e., producing, importing, and exporting.
