Registration on the basis of a patent is carried out in respect of objects of industrial property - utility models, industrial designs and inventions. This procedure is stipulated by the legal systems of all states, as well as by international conventions and agreements. Our company will help you to patent your new technology and development in the shortest possible time, which will allow you to establish a legal protection regime and obtain protection against infringement.
The rules for registration of new technologies and developments do not differ significantly from country to country. In most cases, the norms of national legislation will fully comply with the Paris Convention, the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) and other international acts. Let us highlight the key points to be taken into account when enshrining intellectual property rights:
In contrast to the objects of copyright, the regime of protection for intellectual and commercial property arises only after the registration in the patent offices. Accordingly, claims or lawsuits can be brought against infringers only if a patent or certificate is available.
Developers and businesses have various options for securing rights at the national and international level. It is possible to obtain a patent or certificate, which will be valid only in Russia, or in the territory of another separate state. To develop business or enter production markets at the international level you can use the following directions:
When using the above registration options one should take into account the special rules and requirements for drawing up documents, passing examinations, confirmation of patentability features. Experienced specialists of our company will help you to go through these procedures. We will prepare a full set of documents, act as your representative at the patent offices, and receive ready-made documents after registration. To find out how much patenting or registration costs, as well as other conditions of cooperation, you can consult us.
The initial stage of patenting is the preparation of an application. To do this, the technology or development must be presented in one of the following forms:
Various forms of designations provided for by the Civil Code of the Russian Federation and international acts are also used for registration of a trademark.
Even before filing an application with the patent offices, it is advisable to conduct a preliminary information search on the registers. In this case, identities and similarities with already registered technologies or filed applications can be identified in advance. You can carry out the preliminary search yourself, but it is better to ask patent attorneys for assistance in order to obtain objective results.
The patenting procedure at the national and international level consists of the following steps:
The procedure for drawing up and filing an application will be different when using international patenting systems. Since Russia is a party to all the international acts, it is possible to file the application in Russian through FIPS. Translation into other languages will be required at the examination stage.
If the patenting is carried out on the territory of foreign states, the local patent attorneys have to conduct business. Our company cooperates with specialists from other countries on a permanent basis which allows to carry out registration in any state.
Let us highlight a number of nuances, which should be taken into account when applying for registration of patent rights:
Failure to pay the patent on time may lead to its revocation and loss of rights to the technology. The regime of legal protection will differ, depending on the type of technology to be registered. For inventions such period will be 20 years, and for utility models - no more than 10 years. It is impossible to extend the period of validity of the patent for these objects. For industrial designs the situation is different - although the regime of legal protection will be only 5 years, it can be extended until the maximum possible term of 25 years expires.
Depending on the type of technology to be registered, the content of the set of documents to be submitted to the Patent Office will differ. For inventions and utility models the list of application documents includes:
The application for registration of the industrial design is presented in a different format. Since this subject matter represents only the solution of the external appearance of the product, the application shall be accompanied by a set of images with the description, as well as other graphic materials. In the description it is necessary to disclose the novelty and originality of the essential features of the design solution - these are the criteria which will be checked during the examinations.
The application can be submitted in writing directly to the patent office, or documents can be sent by mail. It is also possible to submit the documentation through the official portal of Rospatent, or by fax. In this case, it is necessary to submit the originals no later than one month.
