Eight Tips For Inventors Planning To File A Patent Application (5 of 8)

Do a patent search:

  • Is your invention novel?
  • What is the scope of the prior art?
  • If you are improving on something that has already been patented, is your invention a new physical feature, a combination of prior separate features, or a new use of a prior feature?
  • If you are improving something that has already been patented, is your invention not obvious?
  • Does your invention produce a new and unexpected result?
