Abstract

The article contains a general analysis of patenting trends in the area of nanotechnologies. With due account to a multi-disciplinary character of this area the main means of patent searching are described. The article gives some recommendations relating to decision-making on the advisability of patenting and licensing of inventions in the area of nanotechnologies de­pending on the patent and competition situation on the market. A relationship between various methods of protection of intellectual property rights relating to nanotechnological inventions is shown, namely publishing in the open scientific and technical literature (copyright), patenting and keeping as a commercial secret (know-how).
