It is possible to patent a production technology only in the form of an invention, since it is a way of performing actions on material objects. The author or customer of the unique technology, or under certain circumstances, the inventor's employer, can obtain a patent.
The development of new technological solutions takes a long time and is accompanied by significant costs for its introduction into production. Therefore, untimely establishment of a protection regime can lead to a situation when a competitor can use the technology with impunity. A patent can be issued in the following way:
Patenting in the Russian Federation goes through the FIPS (Federal Institute of Industrial Property). Protection from unlawful actions of competitors can be taken advantage of already when registering the application. This is due to the emergence of conventional priority, which is given to the application with an earlier registration period.
When filing an application on your own, there are many formalities and nuances to be observed, primarily in the description of the claims and in the formation of a set of documents. Any mistake or inaccuracy can lead to the suspension or denial of registration of exclusive rights.
