To obtain a patent, you have to submit an application to Rospatent. The application is subject to examination. When deciding whether or not to grant a patent, the provisions of Articles 1350 and 1351 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation are taken into account.
When filing an application for an invention or utility model with Rospatent, it is necessary to pay patent fees, the amount of which, as well as the procedure and terms for their payment are established by the Government of the Russian Federation and are regulated by the Regulation on Patent and Other Fees.
State registration for an invention or utility model, which is carried out at the Federal Institute of Industrial Property, is the most reliable solution for protecting the development of the author. Moreover, the author, depending on the nature of the development, may receive a patent for an invention or utility model.
There is a difference in the time between filing an application for a utility model (a patent may take from 8 months) and an invention (registration can take from 18 to 20 months).
