Topographies Deutsch

Three-dimensional structures of microelectronic semiconductors (topographies), for example of a memory chip or a processor, are protactable. A topography is only eligible for protection if it has a so-called individual character”, which the German Patent and Trademark Office does not check. This unexamined right” will be examined only when a request for cancellation has been filed. A topography that does not meet the requirement of individual character” constitutes a fictitious right and does not provide any protection, from the beginning.

Topography protection lasts for 10 years.

Topographies may be applied at the German Patent and Trademark Office.
