In Russia, a design application shall include pictures and description of the design. The description, in turn, shall include a set of essential features (a kind of claims). The scope of protection is defined by essential features listed in the set and represented in the pictures.

Most design applications coming to Russia from other countries only include pictures, so the description is usually compiled by us. It is prescribed that the purpose of the designshall be indicated in the description. In most cases, the purpose of the design is clear from its title and pictures. If not, however, we can request corresponding information from the applicant.
