Ha, it's even untranslated in the English Wikipedia:

  Under German law, the Geschmacksmuster ("aesthetic model") is a form
  of intellectual property that extends industrial design rights over
  the visual design of objects that is not purely utilitarian.  The
  term of a Geschmacksmuster is twenty years, compared to twenty-five
  years for a community design.

And `community design' (which has the nice German name
`Gemeinschaftsgeschmacksmuster') is quite similar but newer.  So with
25 years you are on the safe side.
