Utility models

Improvements to already invented products or the incorporation of new functionalities or applications to an already known technology, though they do not reach the required inventive level for a patent, may be legally protected in Argentina as a utility model.

The filing or legal protection of a utility model allows the holder (author or owner) to obtain a title of ownership granting the exclusive use and exploitation for a non-renewable period of ten years as from the filing in the relevant office.
