The industrial design may be the colour, appearance or shape of the product. Design is one of those components that often decide on the choice of a product, which is why it is subject to the legal protection of the manufacturer. The protection of an industrial design may last maximum 25 years in Poland, which is five of a five-year period of exclusivity.
