International patenting in Russia

In international patenting, the foreign PP fee and the state duty are paid by the customer directly to the recipient, not through us, which ensures the transparency of the procedure.

The goal of many companies is the sole distribution of unique goods in the Russian Federation and in foreign countries. The international patenting of technical articles and industrial designs makes it possible to secure the author's priority to obtain investment, manufacture, and sale.

Trade organizations have the most advantageous position on the market if they formalize the protection of intellectual property under the domestic and foreign procedure. If the right to obtain priority is not assigned to the inventor, there is a high risk that innovative utility models will be used by foreign competitors. As a result, the author will lose a significant part of the profit.

Obtaining a patent abroad is a complicated multi-step procedure that requires time and substantial financial investment. There is no single international patent in the world. There are several special patent systems for copyright protection, which are supported by a certain number of countries.

International patent registration

The initial stage of securing exclusive rights to technical solutions is the filing of an application for a patent in the Russian Federation. Then within 12 months (but after the start of substantive examination on the application) organizations intending to make an international patent can:

International patenting is an official registration of the exclusive rights valid on the territory of a group of foreign states. If the author does not apply for registration of priority for the invention within 1 year from the date of sending the patent application to the Russian Federation, he loses the opportunity to obtain a document on foreign protection of the proposed object.

It is worth engaging qualified attorneys to conduct international or national patenting. Specialists who know the language perfectly well and understand the foreign legislation will ensure comprehensive protection of intellectual property.

Having studied the client's situation, the lawyers will be able to offer the most profitable and fastest option for registering the author's rights. The attorney will independently conduct all legal procedures and represent the interests of the client in Russian and foreign patent offices.

Ways to register a patent

Inventors can register their priority intellectual property rights by registering:

It is supposed to be mandatory to obtain a national patent. The procedure is the most convenient. Authors can file an application in the Russian Federation and then go through the international registration. There is a possibility to submit the application to the domestic office after applying to WIPO. When filing the application it is necessary to pay a registration fee of 1330 Swiss francs, a fee for sending the documents, which depends on the receiving office (Rospatent - 1700 rubles) and the search fee, the amount is also different and varies from 50 to 2000 Swiss francs depending on the organization (if Rospatent does the search, the amount of the fee will be 8500 rubles). The amount of the fees in the national phase of the application depends on the countries chosen by the applicant to obtain protection.

European Patent. Gives the author of a new utility model or invention priority rights, which are confirmed on the territory of European states in those countries for which protection is sought. Individuals do not have to go through the national patenting procedure, obtaining documents in each of the countries that have joined this intellectual property rights confirmation scheme.

The convenience of the method is that the author can draw up and submit an application in English, German or French. The process of obtaining a patent takes 3-5 years, depending on the type of invention.

It is important to note that this patent is not valid throughout Europe, but only in those countries in which protection was applied for. When filing the application, a fee of 1610 euros must be paid, subsequently a fee for the designation of contracting countries - 610 euros, a fee for examination - from 1700 euros, as well as a fee for granting protection depending on the number of claims in the claims. After obtaining the patent within one month it is possible to file a request for the Single European Patent, valid in the territory of 25 EU countries. The request can be submitted in the language of the original filing, but the application itself is translated into the other two official languages.
