Design Patent Renewal Services
The protection period for a registered industrial design is 5 years and should be renewed every 5 years for 4 times for the extension of protection up to 25 years. The renewal period of a registered design begins 6 months before the end of the protection. Designs can be renewed with late payment for up to 6 months after the end of protection. Renewal fees should be deposited at the Turkish Patent Institute by a representative of the company or a trademark attorney. In case such fees are not deposited, registered designs are considered invalid, that is, the monopoly right thereof is removed and they became the property of the public. Unlike patents and trademarks, there is no requirement to work/use of industrial designs in Turkey.
