Patenting Technologies and Ideas
The creation of any intellectual property object is preceded by the emergence and development of an idea.
An idea is an intangible prototype of a future object. According to paragraph 5 Article 1259 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation, ideas are not protected by copyright. There are also no provisions on their protection in the patent law section.
However, from the moment when the author's ideas are embodied in a material result, the idea will turn into an object of legal protection. According to the norms of Part 4 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation, an idea can become a copyright object, invention, industrial design, utility model, computer program, means of individualization or know-how.
The technical solutions include physically registered ideas in the field of devices, process, methods, compositions of substances and others. Depending on the level of complexity, degree of novelty and capability of industrial application, technical solutions will be protected as inventions or utility models.
The creator has the right to apply to Rospatent for registration of the result of creative work and obtain a patent.
Zuykov and partners will help you fill out the application and will correspond with the patent office. The company's lawyers will tell you how to register a technical solution and will give you advice on any issue that may arise.
In Russia, ideas are not protected as intellectual property if they are not expressed in an objective form. When the author describes or displays an idea in a tangible form, it can receive protection as a result of creative activity and become an object of patent, copyright or related rights. The protection of technical solutions belongs to the area of patent law. For legal protection to arise, the creator of an object is required to register intellectual property with the Patent Office. Depending on the characteristics of the claimed solution, it is possible to obtain a patent for an industrial design, utility model or invention.
