Essentials of an idea that needs a Patent

An innovative idea can pop up anytime. These ideas come to your head at the most unexpected
time and call. Now, raises the point which idea can actually patent and which cannot. Usually
when an inventor shares his idea with the patent attorney, the idea is analyzed and expected for
these essential parts
a) Novelty
b) Uniqueness
c) Potential to be beneficial to the market
Novelty: The idea that you have come up with must be a novice, which means it should not have
been part of any other publication, journal neither in use anywhere in any form. The idea might
actually work or not but it should not be a one that is already existing. This is actually a limit
test type- once you identify whether the innovative idea is a novice or one that is already being
implemented, you can then move on with making the prototype. Just like identifying the
compound to be an acid or a base and then analyzing the functional group of a compound.
Uniqueness or non- obviousness: Once novelty is confirmed, the next step is checking for the
uniqueness of the idea of the inventor. The inventor idea should be not a common one were a
skilled person who can actually carry out any type of work can do. The solution or the invention
idea should not be an obvious one; it needs to be something at odds.
Potential to be beneficial to the market: the idea must be one which is capable of industrial
application; Utility is the point that makes it cut the edge. No invention is actually worthy until
there is a proper utilization. The idea is considered more coins in the run if it is claimed to satisfy
the long felt need in the industry at more economical and cheaper rate. The idea must be specific,
detail and can be understood by everyone. Remember!! Complexity will not get with a patent
and it has nothing to do with the patent.

Once we are sure with all the above points a proper protocol is prepared with manuscript. This
manuscript documents all the necessary and every minute happening in turning the idea to
reality. This prototype actually serves the need of proof while submission. There are several law
firms and company that are acting as a helping hand between the inventor idea and patent firm.
They scrutinize the data to the next level and help in actually the process being completed. Every
infinitesimal is considered. Usually an inventor misses this step of patent filing and land up in
The patent office or the United States Patent and Trademark office is the one that actually check
your work confirm its identity and then grant you the patent in US. In the process the innovative
idea is classified to fall in a category defining which type of patent and then on proper debrief the
authority decides to issue a patent on the work done.
