Sometimes referred to as “petty patents” or “innovation patents” a utility model can often be a more appropriate route of protecting some of your inventions than a patent. Faster and cheaper than patent protection, the main reason for exploring the use of utility models over patents is dependent on a client’s commercial objectives, industry, local marketing needs, and often company and market size.
