Utility model 

Technical solutions, as a rule with a lower inventor’s level, are protected by utility models.

Unlike the patent, protection of the utility model can be assured easier, by a less expensive and faster procedure, whereby the protection by a utility model, as far as its effect are concerned, is similar to that of a patent.

The utility model is valid for 4 years from submitting the application. The period of validity of a utility model can be prolonged twice, each time by further 3 years.
