What Can You Patent
Everything under the sun- so long as the idea is novel, non-obvious and useful. To receive a patent your invention or idea must meet to the following criteria:
- Your invention must be able to be legally defined as a process, machine, material, product, or a method or process that improves an existing invention.
- The invention must have a purpose. It must have use.
- Your invention must be non-obvious. In other words, it can’t be something that’s obvious to nearly anyone.
- Your invention must be novel or new as defined by the patent law. That means that you can’t patent an item that’s already available for public use. It also can’t be something that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) already has an application for.
