1 What can be patented? on Fri Oct 20, 2017 12:57 pm


an invention is patentable if it (a) is new ( not known in the body of existing knowledge) (b) industrially applicable ( functional and operative) and (c) involves an inventive step ( the development or improvement is not obvious to a person of average skill in the particular field. ) A patent may be granted to an improvement of a valid patented invention but if you use it sometimes you may infringe the rights of the owner of the first patent. Solve this problem by negotiation with the owner.
