Yes, it is, in fact, a patent. The patent is covered by intellectual property law. Really, if you want to understand this you should do some research. Google it.

In the UK it is not a patent - it would come under a registered design. Patents were originally to protect (and reveal) inventions - not things like appearance - it is still that way in the UK and Europe.
