  • The order of state registration of intellectual property

    At present the services of patent attorneys in Russia become very popular among both physical persons and companies.

    We will describe below a number of provisions that will help you unscramble and comprehend the structure of intellectual property protection.

    Protection of Trademarks, Logos, Brands, Trade Names

    Registration of a trademark developed by a company allows protection of such company’s right to use of its own brand, name or logo.

    A trademark may be represented in a number of different ways that is by word, view, or both. Regardless of the way of making such designation, it may be registered both in Russia and abroad. Such procedure is necessary for each business entrepreneur who desires to make himself / herself safe from unfair competition or business practices.

    In our professional opinion, such procedure should start from search (of analogs) among the earlier registered trademarks of those pending registration. The said procedure shall be run by a professional patent attorney who will be able to draw up an expert opinion and adjust the designation available, if and where necessary.

    We would also recommend you to come up with the type and number of classes of goods and services. A qualified patent attorney will help you choose all necessary activities that will subsequently allow you performing your operations conveniently and without any hindrances.

    • Protection of Design, Commercial Prototype

      Registration of design solutions implies protection of design, appearance of an item. This may be a vessel for beverages or perfume, or action figures of cartoon or comics characters. In a word, this refers to any types of products tailored in its inimitable style.

      Registration of such intellectual property should be also started from search of similar items. Should such sample not be patented yet, you may proceed to the registration procedure.

      Protection of Invention, Utility Model, Know How

      Registration of an idea, utility model or know how as an invention is the best way to protect your creature and also a legally correct approach to managing your intellectual property.

      All sorts of devices, appliances, recipes and a host of other things shall be examined for similarity and registered as soon as possible, if and where there are no similar patents, since only the holder of the priority copyright application will have the exclusive right to the item rather than the person who was the first to have such idea and intention.

      Protection of Software and Data Base

      Registration of software and data base will not only contribute to you further freehold disposal of your own products and control of its use by any third parties whatsoever but will also allow gaining additional proceeds under license and/or other agreements and/or contracts.

      Intellectual Property Protection and Management through Agreements/Contracts

      Registration of an agreement/contract entered into by and between the certificate or patent owner and a person who desires to use such exclusive rights is governed through a license agreement, contract of alienation, or franchise agreement.

      Intellectual property income may be managed through such aforesaid agreements/contracts only if and where such agreements are duly registered with RosPatent.
