When an original idea for an Internet portal arises, its authors try to preserve their rights and prevent outsiders from using the idea. Some site creators patent their offspring for this.
Usually, a patent is issued only for an object that exists in reality and can be perceived by a person using the senses. Since the site does not belong to such subjects, it is more often about depositing it as an object protected by copyright law.
But if we are talking about a site, the idea of which is a kind of new technical solution, and with the help of which it is possible to achieve a certain technical problem, the situation changes. You have every right to file an application with the State Department of the software product and get a patent shortly. It should be remembered that you can register your site both as an invention and as a sample model.
For such a registration, you will have to fill out an application as a diagram that will clearly illustrate all the parts of your site as a single system. It is very important to show all kinds of connections between elements and the importance of each of them. The result of the application should be information about how important the technical result obtained as a result of the work of your site is.
If in your case we are talking about the technology of creating a website, then you will have to reconsider the patent application. Its wording should sound something like this - "the process of performing certain tasks over an intangible object using technical means." Otherwise, you will have to fill out the application in a different way, and select the portal device as the main object in it.
Sample examples of patent applications for the site may look as follows: "an Internet portal for the secure exchange of information in the implementation of communication connections", "an electronic system for the interaction of content and equipment for the general cognitive process of users", "a site for the exchange of intercultural traditions through content", etc. etc. In the event that you find it difficult to formulate a patent application yourself, contact a notary.
