Utility model registration
In accordance with Article 6 of the Law "On Inventions, Utility Models and Industrial Designs," utility models include constructive implementation of the means of production and consumer goods, as well as their constituent parts. Legal protection for a utility model arises from the moment of registration, thus the rightholder is granted with ownership rights such as, right to use, manufacture, dispose, and other proprietary rights. After obtaining a patent for a utility model, the patent owner has the right to prohibit third parties from using utility model without his consent or without paying him an appropriate remuneration.
Thus, registration and obtaining a patent for a utility model will protect you against unauthorized use, sale of objects in the competitors' market.
