What are the differences between “Patent” and “Industrial Design” ?

Pursuant to Article 1 of Patent Law No. 13 of 2016 – Patentis anexclusive rights granted by the state to inventorwho creates any technology inventions for a certain period of time implementing the invention itself or giving approval to other parties to implement it.

Pursuant to Article 1 of Industrial Design Law No. 31 of 2000 – Industrial design is a creation of the shape, configuration, or composition of lines or colors, or lines and colors, or a combination thereof consisting of three dimensions or two dimensions that give an aesthetic impression and can be realized in a three-dimensional or two-dimensional pattern that can be used to produce a product, goods, industrial craft, or handicraft.

Thus, “Patent” is related to technology in the form of products or processes containing novelty, inventive step and industrial applicability (More to its function and in the form of products and processes or improvements and development of product and processes). Meanwhile, “Industrial Design” is a creation in the form of three or two dimensions that gives an aesthetic impression and can be applied in industry to produce products, goods or crafts (Not functional but aesthetic in products or goods).
