“Design” means only the features of shape, configuration, pattern, ornament or composition of lines or colors applied to any article whether in two dimensional or three dimensional or in both forms, by any industrial process or means, whether manual, mechanical or chemical, separate or combined, which in the finished article appeal to and are judged solely by the eye.
Design registration does not protect any technical features of the article to which it is applied. Upon grant, design registration confers rights for a period of 15 years from the date of application. The registration is valid for an initial term of 10 years and can be renewed for another 5 years.
