Difference between Patent and Non Patent Literature
06:54

In this lecture you will learn about the first basic requirement of patentability i.e novelty. It is an important aspect for an invention to be patentable. As per the Patent laws across the Globe an invention qualifies as a Patent only if it is Novel, Non – Obvious, Industrially Applicable. Novelty means that the invention must be new and no and no information about it must be previously available in the public domain. This lecture will further illustrate on novelty of an invention with examples.
