Generally, industrial design protection is limited to the country in which protection is granted. The Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration
of Industrial Designs, a WIPO administered treaty, offers a procedure for international registration of designs. Applicants can file a single international
application either with WIPO or the national or regional office of a country party to the treaty. The design will then be protected in as many member countries of the
treaty as the applicant designates.
