First Steps to Getting a Patent.

There are many criteria for an invention to be patentable, but the most important of these are:

1.    Novelty - an invention is new or novel if it does not form part of the "state of the art". The state of the art includes everything that has been made available to the public anywhere in the world by means of a written or oral description, by use, or in any other way, before the date of filing of the Patent Application

2.     Inventiveness - this means that an invention must not be obvious having regard to the state of the art.
