  21. Problems to have to be solved (Chile) • Design patent applications are only with drawings, prohibits photos. • Marks or Indications “Diseño Industrial” or “D.I.” and the registration No. as a condition of enforcing the design patent. • 3) The criminal  sanctions for design infringement, are just  pecuniary fines,Imprisonment is not available. Not enough so as to give refraining effect. • 4) The customs do not have authority to judge design infringement. Lawsuit is always necessary. • 5) Precautionary measures (injunctions) are very seldom granted by the Courts.

  22. Closing Remarks Each customer and each brand can enjoy legal protection only when IP systems including design patent are appropriately legislated and operated. Such protection will bring industrial development and country prosperity with customers’ happiness.
