The state registration of intellectual property objects is attributed to the powers of the federal executive authority. In Russia this is the Federal Service for Intellectual Property (Rospatent).
Current Russian legislation, depending on the object of legal protection, provides for:
As a utility model, a technical solution relating to a device is protected.
A utility model patent is granted if the solution is of worldwide novelty and is industrially applicable. The term of validity of a utility model patent is 10 years.
An official acceleration of the examination of applications in Rospatent is possible.
Before filing, we recommend you to make international patent-information search (if required by client), with the purpose to find information sources on similar or resembling technical solutions and estimation of chances to get a patent.
By the results of search we will send you the report with recommendations on expediency of patenting of your technical solution and recommended object of patenting.
The owner of a utility model is entitled to obtain protection in other countries. This is done by submitting a national application to the patent office of the selected country.
When a technical solution relates to a design or device, it is advisable to patent the object in the form of a utility model. To do this, the developer or author applies for registration at the patent office and submits an application. Then, the documents and the claimed model undergo a two-step expert examination, which results in a decision to grant or refuse to grant a document of protection. The received patent will allow to establish the priority date, confirm the powers of the patentee to use, own and dispose of the rights to the utility model.
