03.10.2011 Kosovo Designs Kosovo New Industrial Design Law Explained PETOSEVIC PETOSEVIC

The new industrial design law, which entered into force in Kosovo on September 5, introduce important novelties, which we explain below.

The Law on Industrial Designs

The new Law on Industrial Designs entered into force on September 5, 2011. The law is intended to be in line with the corresponding EU regulations. The most important change concerns the industrial design registration procedure. According to the new law, the Kosovo IPO will perform a formal examination only, in order to determine whether the object is genuinely a design as defined by the law and whether it contradicts the public rules. The substantive examination has been left out. As a result, the IPO will not examine the novelty and the individual character of an industrial design. Unlike the previous law, the new law also excludes the possibility for a legal person to be considered as the designer; the designer can only be a natural person.
