Regarding the Internet content distribution of video footage that explains the Design Registration System

As of February 2, 2009, the Japan Patent Office is starting to distribute a new video over the Internet, titled “Design Rights:Protector of Originality.” This video was created especially for those who are not familiarized with the Design Registration System and thus it contains basic information, such as, the outline of the Design Registration System and how to prepare a design application, etc.

Via a story, the video footage explains the importance of design rights and the life of design application. The video is divided into three chapters:
