Find out if your Invention is Patentable
Is Your Invention Patentable?
To file a patent in the United States, your concept must meet three requirements of 1) novelty 2) non-obviousness and 3) utility. In plain English this means your invention must be new and useful. Your application will be rejected if the invention:
- is already known or in use
- has been previously patented or described in writing in a printed publication
- was in public use or on sale for over one year prior to the application
Conditions for successfully filing a patent are a bit more nuanced than just these criteria. A patent lawyer can determine if your invention meets the criteria for novelty and non-obviousness.
