Design protection for user interface images
According to the Korean Design Protection Law, designs such as icons displayed on a screen of a computer, mobile phone, or PDA can also be exclusively protected. In other words, when a user interface image design, for example, figures displayed on display units such as liquid crystal displays of various products, is temporarily implemented on a product, the product with the user interface image acquires a design registration under the Design Protection Law, and accordingly, the design registrant can exercise an exclusive right for the design. In this case, the title of the product may be "Computer Monitor with User Interface Image," "Mobile Phone with Graphics User Interface (GUI)," "Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) Displaying Icons," etc.
