How to extend the protection of an industrial design?

The registration of an industrial design offers its holder an exclusive right on it. However, this law has territorial character, i.e., only exists in those countries where the industrial design has been registered.

By this reason, the designer that has registered its creation as design industrial Spanish can raise is expand the protection to other territories as it Community European.
