Topographieschutzrechte & Anwendungen für die Topographiegestaltung von Halbleiter


Explanation:
The terms "Maskearbeitrechte" and "Maskearbeitapplikationen" do not seem too widely used in the Internet. In contrast, there were several hits for "maskwork" or "mask work" or "mask-work", including one in German as follows:

http://www.bitlaw.com/copyright/maskwork.html#definition

"Mask Works are defined in the Act as: a series of related images, however fixed or encoded (1) having or representing the predetermined three-dimensional pattern of metallic, insulating, or semiconductor material present or removed from the layers of a semiconductor chip product; and (2) in which series the relation of the images to one another is that each image has the pattern of the surface of one form of the semiconductor chip product."

http://www.darpa.mil/cmo/pages/intellectual.html#semi

"In 1984, Congress created a new method of protecting the intellectual property aspects involved in the manufacturing of semiconductor integrated circuits, also called maskworks."

http://www.patentanwaelte.de/schutzrechtsarten.htm

"Das Halbleiterschutzgesetz schafft die Möglichkeit, die Oberflächengestaltung von Mikrochips, das sogenannte mask-work, zu schützen. Der Schutz ist beim Deutschen Patent- und Markenamt zu beantragen."

http://www.transpatent.com/gesetze/topoges.html

"Recht auf den Schutz der Topographie"

From the information at the above sites, it appears that something like the following, shortened to taste, might work:

"Topographieschutz" or "Oberflächengestaltungsrechte or Topographiegestaltungsrechte" or
"Oberflächenschutzrechte or Topographieschutzrechte" or "Recht auf den Schutz der Topographie" or simply "Halbleiterschutz" as in "Halbleiterschutzgesetz

and

"Applikationen/Anwendungen für die Oberflächengestaltung/Topographiegestaltung von Mikrochips/Halbleiter"
