Details Design Registration in Norway

Here you can mandate us to obtain design protection in Norway.

We will prepare and file your design application in Norway and inform you about the progress of proceeding. Our offer includes the fees of the intellectual property office for the application, publication and registration of your design.

A registered design right in Norway will be established through a registration.

The maximum term of protection in Norway is 25 years provided the registration is renewed 4 times for periods of 5 years each. Requests for renewal shall be made in writing to the Norwegian Industrial Property Office no earlier than one year before and no later than six months after the expiry of the registration period. For spare parts, the maximum period of protection is limited to 5 years only. Spare parts are products used for repairing complex products. complex product means a product which is composed of multiple components which can be replaced permitting disassembly and reassembly of the product, f.e cars.

The first term of design protection in Norway will be five years calculated from the date of filing. In certain cases the date of filing starts 6 months before the actual application date, namely if an application for an industrial design was filed before in a foreign country but not longer than 6 months before the application in Norway and if the priority of this foreign application date for the new application in Norway was claimed.

A Design right may only be granted if the design is new and has individual character.

A design shall be considered new if no identical design has been made available to the public before the date of filing of the application for registration (or before the date of priority). Designs shall be deemed to be identical if their features differ only in immaterial details.

A design shall be considered to have individual character if the overall impression it produces on the informed user differs from the overall impression produced on such a user by any design which has been made available to the public before the date referred to in the second paragraph. In assessing individual character, the degree of freedom of the designer in developing the design shall be taken into consideration.

The registered design in Norway is an unexamined industrial property right. Neither the office nor we will examine the novelty and individual characteristic of your design. Both, novelty and the individual characteristic of the design, will statutorily be presumed because of the registration. These provisions will optimize your legal position: every third person contesting the registered industrial design has the burden of proof that the design had not been known to the public before the priority date.

Opposition cannot be filed by a third party in Norway during registration process.

An application for design registration is automatically kept secret until registration (max. six months), unless otherwise specified in the application.

In Norway everal designs may be included in the same application (multiple registration) if they belong to the same Locarno class. Such a multiple application will affect the reduction of the office fees.
