PATENTICA’s patent attorneys deal with design application prosecution from filing to registration, maintenance through renewal, recording changes and licenses, responding to Office Actions, defending and contesting designs through oppositions and addressing infringements, counterfeit and unfair competition cases in Russia, CIS countries and abroad.
We also help to overcome Notifications of refusal issued in relation to international designs filed via the Hague System, conduct clearance and freedom-to-operate searches and provide fully-fledged design portfolio management strategies.
As an example, here are the basics of industrial design patents in Russia:
12-months’ grace period
A 12-months’ novelty grace period for filing an application is allowed after the original disclosure of a design before an application must be filed for its registration.
Documents / Information we need
- Names and addresses of applicant(s) and designer(s);
- Power of Attorney executed by the applicant(s) (no legalization is required)
- Certified copy of priority application(s) (if priority is claimed)
