PATENT LAW DEFINITION
A patent is a contract between an inventor and the government. The inventor provides a comprehensive description of the invention to the general public in an application for patent. This benefits the public by providing awareness of this invention to be used as a base for an invention that is further. In return, if the invention is new (as compared to what known to the public before the invention), then a patent is issued. This patent gives the inventor a right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, or selling the patented invention throughout the United States, also from importing the invention into the USA, for the life span of the patent, usually 20 years from filing.
Grant of a patent does NOT itself provide an inventor a right to exploit the patented invention — it merely gives the inventor a right to exclude others from practicing the invention. By way of instance, if an investor makes an addition to a formerly patented system, and gets a patent, the inventor can prevent the owner of the first patent by using the improvement. On the other hand, the inventor may not be able to exploit the improvement, at least before the original patent expires, since such manipulation might infringe that original patent.
The following items are patentable under these statutes:
1) Procedures: new methods of doing something
2) Machines: motors, machines, instruments, gadgets, etc..
3) Articles of manufacture: Utilities, tools, structures made from plastics, metal, ceramics, etc.. Compositions of the thing: new pharmaceuticals, chemical compounds, naturally occurring substances when considerably purified, DNA sequences, biological materials, e.g., germs, viruses, proteins, and protein fragments, monoclonal antibodies, epitopes, and vectors.
4) Improvements in any of the above
5) Living organisms: genetically altered plants and animals.
6) Computer applications: alone and together with other gear.
7) Business approaches: strategies for doing business, but not those solely directed to patenting abstract ideas.
8) Designs: decorative aspects of articles of manufacture.
9) Non-patentable items include nebulous notions or ideas, laws of nature (e.g., gravity), mathematical calculations alone (however computer-implemented mathematical algorithms making a concrete, useful, and concrete result are patentable subject matter), and purely psychological processes.
A vital component to successful patent protection is writing patent claims that define the invention as broadly as possible, but without overlapping prior art that may make the patent invalid. This is normally best done by someone with ability and experience in patent training, so consulting with a patent lawyer is an option.
