Design Registration in Hungary
Design means only the features of shape, pattern, configuration, or ornament or composition of lines or color or combination thereof applied to any article whether two dimensional or three dimensional or in both forms, by any industrial process. Design registration in Hungary is valid only for 25 years. Design registration is available for designs, which are novel, and have individual character. Therefore, it is important to apply for design registration when the design is created. Those designs are new or original used in any country before the date of application for registration. The design should relate to features of shape, pattern, configuration, or ornamentation applied or applicable to an article. Therefore, designs of industrial plans, layouts and installations are not registerable under the Act.
