To make your invention forever associated with your name, apply for a patent to a special body dealing with the protection of rights in the field of inventions - the Federal Service for Intellectual Property. According to Article 1345 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation, all inventions and scientific discoveries must be patented, i.e. protect your copyright.
Before filing an application with the Federal Service for Intellectual Property, conduct a preliminary patent search. Its purpose will be to determine the novelty of the invention (or lack thereof) based on the description of the technical solution. This preliminary search gives you confidence in the uniqueness of your invention and the possibility of obtaining a patent.
Fill out a patent application (application). Be sure to include all the data on the author of the invention - the person for whom the patent will be issued. Write down the place of registration and place of actual residence of all persons who are indicated in the patent application.

Indicate all the details of the filed application for the grant of a patent: the date of the application, the number of the country where it was filed, or make a copy by notarizing it. If you are personally unable to file a patent application on your own, your representative can do so. Draw up a power of attorney in his name, sealed and notarized for a legal entity.
