How do I know my invention is patentable

Review the list of what can and cannot be patented and determine if your invention falls into one of those categories.

At the most basic level, in order for your invention to be patentable, it must be both (1) new and (2) non-obvious. "New" means there is nothing else exactly like it. "Non-obvious" means that there must be protectable differences between your invention and the existing products and patents that would not have been obvious to someone skilled in the relevant area of technology at the time you created the invention. If you believe that the differences in your invention are non-obvious and they would be valuable to protect, you should contact me to set up a time to speak over the phone or in person about the invention and how to proceed.
