A utility model patent protects how an invention works, including shape, structure, or combination. A design patent protects how a product looks, including shape, pattern, color, or combination.

Highly recommend!

I am very pleased to have chosen GWBMA, and they file my GUI with CNIPA. It started with a brief conversation with Mr. Mao. He advised me on how best to proceed, I paid the fee, and my paperwork was ready to go within just a few days. He was very thorough and communicative throughout the whole process. Highly recommend!


Great service!
