Design vs Utility-Patents

Design vs. Utility Patents

A design patent allows you to protect the "ornamental design of a functional item" for 15 years. In contrast with a utility patent, a design patent does not protect an item's function. If you created a modern-looking chair, you invented that modern look, not the chair itself.
