The design criteria include protecting the look of a product and ensuring that it meets public policy and morality standards. The novelty and individual character of the design must be demonstrated by showing that it differs from any previous designs, and graphical representation is essential to display all the features of the design accurately. The quality of the graphical representation is crucial for design protection, and it must allow for reduction or enlargement to a size of no greater than 8 cm by 16 cm.

A design patent search focuses on the design aspect of an invention, while a utility patent search focuses on its functional aspects. Design patent searches are typically more visual and may involve searching for similar designs or patterns, while utility patent searches may involve searching for specific features or functionalities. 

How long does a design patent search take?

The duration of a design patent search can vary depending on the complexity of the design and the depth of the search. It can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to complete.
