A patent is a document, which certifies the exclusive right, authorship and priority on the possession and use of medical inventions. In the modern world the registration of a patent for utility model of medical equipment, drug and another has a social importance, as it regulates relations in the sphere of industrial property.
In our country a very rarely touched on issues such as additional benefits and rights, and there are questions at the time of patenting inventions. However, as practice shows, such questions are very important and occur frequently. The majority of patents on medical inventions are not “live” twenty-year statutory period, which is evidence that the patent owner is not interested in the preservation of its exclusive rights to use the invention. At the same time each year in the Department of medical technology comes a huge number of applications that successfully passed the registration of an industrial design, on methods of treatment and diagnosis.
What is the reason for this, as it may seem at first glance, paradoxical situation. Let’s not talk about the applications that come from abroad, will focus on the problems of the Russian patenting. Such problems are well-known as a result of years of experiments and observations, as well as working with inventors in the medical field. Unfortunately, applications for patenting serves not only competent and qualified professionals, but also ordinary citizens, many of whom have no medical education, and some of them appear candid medical charlatans. But any inventions that relate to health, should be inspected very carefully, as concern the health and life of man. That’s why there are such negative moments at the time of patenting.
