The utility model is an invention of a lower range than patents. By registering a utility model, you will have the right to exploit your invention during a period of ten years from the application date.  The procedure of registering a utility model is shorter and less expensive than the patent. However, not all the countries protect utility models.

The industrial designs  protect the shape of the invention. They need to be renewed every five years, and its protection lasts 25 years. Industrial designs can be protected in all the countries of the European Union by filing an application before EUIPO.
