Traditional and original paid services

Traditional patenting through the authorized licensing authorities of separate states: national-territorial limitation of effect.

Persons concerned should note that the official verification of the author’s priority for the object of intellectual property in a separate country does not guarantee its acknowledgement and the relevant legal protection in other countries.

 

Any state patent has the limited territorial nature of effect. This means that such document verifies absolute copyright and guarantees its legal protection only within borders of a state it was assigned in (by the patenting authority).

 

Moreover the possibility of existence of competing author’s priorities (for various types of creative activity products based on objective characteristics of social needs and current stage of development of science and technology) in various countries is quite high.

 

If nature of your professional and commercial activity and specificity of business interests are not connected with the prospect of international development, your business and personal aims and goals can be reached with the help of the national protection of your authorship. 

 

The IUCI represented by the IAIQP will provide you with the necessary assistance or proper complex of services in the assignation of the author’s priority and legal protection of copyright on national level in the following formats:

  •  Through the initiation, organization and support of the appropriate procedure in the licensing authority of the relevant state;
  •  Through the implementation of the procedure of patenting on the IOSCEAAD-775 standard which automatically provides the necessary legal protection of copyright and the related rights on national and international scale.

 

Expediency of international protection of copyright and the related rights.

If your activities connected with the creation and use of original objects of intellectual property somehow go beyond borders of one state, you should pay appropriate attention to the protection of your rights and interests on the international level. This is important in order to provide exclusivity, economic efficiency and competitive advantages of your commercial or other business initiatives on the international level; protect your economic rights and interests on the international level; protect your authorship for products of creative activity on the international level.

 

Legal forms of international protection of copyright and the related rights:

  •  simultaneous determination of the author’s priority and its protection in several countries at the same time;
  •  use of the integrated international systems of protection of copyright;
  •  implementation of patenting on the IOSCEAAD-775 standard which automatically provides the necessary legal protection of copyright and the related rights on national and international scale.

 

If you wish to get the patent not only on national level but also in other countries, you should submit applications to licensing authorities of countries of your interest.

In this case you should bear in mind that you must submit applications to licensing authorities of such countries within 12 months starting from the date of submission of the relevant national application.

If you are interested in territorial distribution and protection of your author’s priority in many countries, the submission of separate national applications will be connected with significant expenses, isolation of separate processes and long terms of their realization.

 

In this case it would be reasonable to use the widespread mechanisms of integrated international systems of copyright protection.

 

Resources of international protection of intellectual property

 

The IUCI possesses all the necessary resources to provide interested persons with assistance in the implementation of patenting of objects of intellectual property almost in every country of the world, and also within the framework of the following integrated international systems of copyright protection:

 

  •  РСТ (Patent Cooperation Treaty): implemented under the auspices of the WIPO Patent Office, valid in about 150 countries of the world and allowing to submit the necessary national applications during 30 months;
  •  European Patent: can be assigned on the basis of the European Patent Convention of 1977;
  •  Eurasian Patent: Eurasian application is submitted through the licensing authority of the state included into the list of members of the Eurasian Patent Organization (founded in 1995 by 9 states) or directly into the Eurasian Patent Organization in Moscow.

 

Instrumental and human resources of the IUCI in the field of assistance to the efficient international protection of copyright and the related rights are formed from among own specialists of the International Academy of Intellect And Qualitative Progress and partners of the ICUI - experienced licensing attorneys or other professional specialists from various countries, engaged in the sphere of jurisprudence and economic relations.

 

International registration of the trademark

International registration of the trademark is among services of the IUCI in the field of support and protection of intellectual property with special significance for the commercial turnover. Such procedure of acquisition of legal protection of intellectual property through the special firm marking of the company is implemented in countries for which the organization is not the resident.

 

According to legislations of the majority of countries an international company wishing to get protection of the trademark on the international level will have to submit the application and receive the security document for the relevant registration in its own country at first. There is no unified international document verifying the registration of the trademark valid in every country of the world. Every country considers the possibility of such protection on its territorial level. This is why the length of expertise may vary in different countries. Term of the international registration is 8-18 months depending on the country.

 

Ways of registration of the trademark

1) registration of the trademark on the basis of Madrid Agreement

Any country from among members of the Madrid system for the international registration of marks(84 countries) can provide its residents with the preferential - simplified instruments of international registration of the trademark. This preferential mechanism of registration means the submission of one single international application. The application is submitted on the basis of primarily submitted documents (or preliminarily received national certificate) in English or French to the patent office of any country - member of the above-mentioned agreement. International application is prepared and submitted in accordance with the rules of the WIPO Patent Office with remuneration of international fees and national fees for the transmittal to the patenting office of the relevant country. The submission is checked for full correspondence with the stated international requirements and then officially published in the international registry - this is verified by the certificate of the international registration. After such registration countries of the applicant's interest start their expertise concerning the possibility of national registration.

2) Registration of the trademark in the European Union

In accordance with European licensing agreements today you can get protection of intellectual property in 32 countries of the European Union on the basis of the single application, submitted in one of five languages (English, German, Spanish, Italian or French). The application is submitted through the licensing attorney together with the recommendation of the relevant national patenting office into the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) located in Alicante, Spain. The undoubted disadvantage of such registration for the applicant is that following consequence: if one country of the EU rejects to register the trademark, it will not get the general European registration.

 

Peculiarities of licensing procedures in the United States

United States of America are traditionally considered as the leader of the international market of intellectual property in several vectors:

  •  licensing procedures are fast and have original structure;
  •  high level of practical implementation of products of creative activity in commercial turnover;
  •  high economic demand for innovations;
  •  macroeconomic significance of the US and high level of influence of this country on the international market.

 

One of the obvious advantages of licensing legislation of the US is the registration of the provisional application for patent. This can be submitted in any form and volume and allows to assign the priority for a term of one year. In future a person has to submit a constant application during one year. In this case preliminarily received temporal document (state certificate verifying the priority right, valid for 12 months) allows the inventor carry out his business and negotiations with potential investors or buyers of innovations in full confidence.

 

The IUCI represented by the IAIQP together with their official partners are willing to provide you with operative and high-quality services in submission of applications for patenting in USA for the following products of creative activity:

  •  business-ideas;
  •  inventions and utility models;
