Patent, utility model or design?

What are the differences between these rights and how do you choose the right one? Patents and utility models protect both the technical function and the mode of action of a product, whereas a registered design protects the appearance of a product. If your product distinguishes itself by its technical function it will be relevant to protect the product with a patent or a utility model.
