Patent novelty requirements and new US law


To be patentable, an invention has to be new and inventive. In this article, we investigate absolute novelty and relative novelty in respect of a patentable inventions and the concepts of first-to-file and first-to-invent.


Absolutely novelty


Most countries or regional patent filing systems require that an invention, to be patentable, should be absolutely new. Absolute novelty means that the invention should not have been known to the public anywhere in the world, in any manner, immediately prior the earliest patent application date (earliest priority date). In other words, any act that makes the invention available to the public, ANYWHERE, destroys the novelty of the invention. As an example, a non-confidential oral disclosure from one person to another, of the invention, anywhere in the world, destroys the novelty of the invention. One might be hard pressed to prove such a novelty destroying event beyond reasonable doubt or on a balance of probabilities, or as the case may be in a territory or country. Be that as it may, absolute novelty is a very unforgiving requirement.

Patents expire after 5years

The company has to find a new use or formula for the drug and they can re-apply for another 5yrs.
Some companies IMO abuse this. I take Imitrex which has been on the market about 15yrs. But it still costs $27 a pill. Because they made an injectable version, a 100mg pill, and then re-formulated the product fom sumatriptan to sumatriptan succinate, all so no one can make a generic.
Yo...ere financial burder for others.
I'm not sure what, but something needs to change so companines can offer medicines at lower prices or something, if they will not allow their patent to expire. Or have more insurance plans cover brand name drugs without making the doctor & patient jump through hoops to get special approval, maybe.
Just my generic vs. brand name rant for the night :-)

1946 ENIAC, the world's first electronic digital computer, was officially unveiled at the Moore School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. ENIAC is short for Electronic Numerical Integrator and Calculator, and was conceived and designed by John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert of the University of Pennsylvania.

1876 American inventors Elisha Gray and Alexander Graham Bell each filed patents for their version of a telephone.

After Patent on Genes Is Invalidated

Published: March 30, 2010
"Many biotechnology stocks fell on Tuesday as investors struggled to understand the impact of a ruling that threw out parts of two gene patents and called into question thousands more."
"Stock market losses were muted, with two major indexes that track the shares of the industry falling by less than 1 percent each."
... patents held by Myriad Genetics covering two breast cancer genes, known as BRCA1 and BRCA2, were invalid."
"Myriad analyzes those genes in an expensive test that predicts whether a woman is at a high risk of getting breast or ovarian cancer."
"The plaintiffs in the case, which included various medical groups, said the patents on DNA were illegal and impeded access to the testing."

So anyway, the USA's intellectual property keeps

Getting siphoned off by china stealing trade secrets, patents, info. about how to build and maintain complex computer and military stuff (notice how suddenly they magically "pulled themselves into" the manned space scene?) via china's extensive cadre of "professional hackers."
according to america's "counter terrorism czar," richard clarke, he says that "every major company in america has ...orses, all ready to be activated on command, so we won't know what hit us. or what's already hitting us.
"my greatest fear," clarke says, is that rather than having a cyver pearl harbor event, we will instead have this death of a thousand cuts. where we lose our competitiveness by having all of our research and development stolen by the chinese."
