The acronym DRGM means Deutsches Reichsgebrauchsmuster [and/or Deutsches Reich Gebrauchsmuster -Third Reich], and stands for the design/function of an item being officially registered inside all of the Germany states and not just a single/local registration. DRGM registration was introduced in 1891 and continued to be utilized up until 1949 [during Allied occupation]. The registration was valid for three years. The DRGM registration offered a copyright protection for the duration of three years and included the right to indicate the item status by marking the registered items with the DRGM acronym. It was left to the registration owner to include the registration number as the DRGM marking alone was the element with legal character. The actual result of such a registration was called Gebrauchsmusterschutz. DRGM registered products were protected either for their way of intended use or design only without patent protection. Patent rights were secured by applying for a Deutsches Reichspatent.
