What is a Design Patent Application
A US design patent, meaning patent pending, covers any new, original and ornamental design for a product (of manufacture) and has a term of 14 years in the US. The US design patent protects only the appearance of the article and not structural or useful features. Appearance includes visual ornamental characteristics embodied in, or applied to, an article of manufacture, including configuration or shape of an article, surface ornamentation applied to an article, or to the combination of configuration and surface ornamentation of an article of manufacture. The written document of a US design patent includes a title, technical field, description of the drawings, a claim, and one or more drawings of the invention. There is not a provisional design application.
