How to navigate the Three hurdles to Patentability
Usefulness means to have utility. An invention must be capable of some beneficial use.
Next, Novelty means the invention must be new. An invention, in general, is not new if it has been described in a printed publication, known or used by others, or has been in public use or on sale (what is known). If an invention is not new, then the invention is not patentable.
Moreover, Non-obviousness means if the differences between the invention sought to be patented and the prior art (what is known) are such that the invention as a whole would have been obvious to a person skilled in the subject matter of the invention then the invention is obvious and not patentable. Furthermore, as an example obvious non patentable subject matter includes the following obvious changes substitution of one color for another, or changes in size, changes in material used are insignificant changes over what is known.
