A utility model can be granted for an article, product or a technical device that is new and inventive and that can be used to solve a technical problem. The invention must be novel and it must differ from the products that have previously become known. The differences need not be as significant as in a regular patent application. A utility model is a tool to get quick protection for an invention that may not be patentable, but in turn the utility model can be kept in force for a shorter time than a regular patent.

The maximum term of a utility model in Finland is 10 years if renewed. The renewals have to be done four and eight years after the utility model application was filed by payment of a renewal fee to the Finnish Patent Office.
