The registration of designs and models makes it possible to protect the shapes of two or three-dimensional products, or of their components, so as to prevent third parties from manufacturing products with the same or similar shapes. It is possible to register the shapes of products that are not only real but also virtual, such as, for example, animations, icons and graphic interfaces.
