The subject of the study is the insufficiently studied problem in the historical and legal science of the state-legal regulation of the processes of patent and licensing activities in the USSR, and especially the administrative and legal mechanisms of the formation of this activity in the first half of the 1960s. It was during this period that the Soviet State began to actively pay attention to the issues of patent protection of industrial products exported and the organization of patent business within the country. The paper investigates archival materials of the Novosibirsk region, which allow describing administrative and legal ways of organizing patent work on the example of the West Siberian State Farm. The purpose of the study is the analysis of administrative and legal acts of state authorities of the USSR of 1961-1965, which allows to expand the range of knowledge about the organization of patent and licensing activities in the USSR, to identify its rational elements, which in the future could be used in modern conditions in an updated form. In the course of the study, the formal legal method, traditional for historical and legal science, was used, which allowed interpreting the content of the legal prescriptions under study by describing the norms of law, establishing legal signs of patent and licensing activities in the period under study. System-structural methods of analysis made it possible to isolate the elements of the organizational and legal structure of patent and licensing work in the USSR in the first half of the 1960s. The analysis of the sources allowed the author to conclude that in 1960-1965 in the USSR there was the formation of a system of patent and licensing work, the main purpose of which was the protection of state interests in the field of invention. The organizational basis of the activity consisted of patent divisions of research institutes, patent examination groups, as well as patent divisions of enterprises and organizations. The main mechanisms of the organization of patent and licensing activities were based on the directive and instructional provisions of the Committee for Inventions and Discoveries of the USSR.
