The form creations have their own figure of protection: the so-called Industrial Designs, which can be applied both to three-dimensional objects and to two-dimensional forms such as prints, designs or rasters. The duration of its protection is of up to 25 years, being necessary to renew this protection every 5 years. The international protection of a form creation can be achieved by applying for industrial designs in each country or by making use of some specific International Treaties (Community Design, International Design…)
The protection titles of Semiconductor Product Topographies are the most recent industrial property modality, and refer to electronic integrated circuits. Its purpose is to protect the layout scheme of the different layers and elements that make up the integrated circuit, its three-dimensional layout and its interconnections, which constitute its «topography». The duration of its protection is of up to 10 years from the end of the year in which it is exploited for the first time in the world or the topography is registered.
