Industrial design registrations or patents usually aim to protect static images. However, there are several circumstances in which it is not enough to protect the images at a given moment, but indeed their movement on a screen. The panel’s objective is to know and discuss the strategies that have been implemented in Brazil and abroad to protect dynamic graphical user interfaces through industrial designs.
