In this video we cover the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO) four requirements for patentability, and we help you answer the most important questions for each requirement:
- Patentable subject matter (statutory categories)
- Is my idea patentable subject matter? (is my idea a statutory category?)
- Novel (“new”)
- Is my idea novel? (is my idea unique?)
- Is my idea useful? (can my idea be considered useful?)
- Is my idea non-obvious? (can my idea be considered non-obvious?)
