      • Patent:
      • a legal document
      • granted by the government
      • giving an inventor the exclusive
      • right to make, use,
      • and sell an invention
      • for a specified number of years
    • WHY PATENTS?
      • Exclusive right to make, use, and sell an invention:
      •  Safeguards investments in product-development
    • WHAT IS PATENTABLE?
      • The invention must be:
      • New
        • invention did not previously exist
      • Inventive
        • significant improvement to existing technology
      • Industrial applicable
    • “ NOVEL”?
      • New at the date of filing the patent application
      • New if it does not form part of the "state of the art"
      • "State of the art" means everything made available to the public before the filing date
      • There must have been no public disclosure of an invention before the filing date of the patent application
    • WHAT CANNOT BE PATENTED? (1)
      • The following are not considered to be inventions for the purposes of granting European patents:
      • Discoveries, scientific theories and mathematical methods
      • Aesthetic creations
      • Schemes, rules and methods for performing mental acts, playing games or doing business, and programs for computers
      • Presentations of information
    • WHAT CANNOT BE PATENTED? (2)
      • Inventions whose commercial exploitation would be contrary to "ordre public" or morality
      • Plant or animal varieties or essentially biological processes for the production of plants or animals
      • Methods for treatment of the human or animal body by surgery or therapy and diagnostic methods practised on the human or animal body
    • SOFTWARE?
      • Program for a computer "as such" is excluded from patentability, but…
      • Not excluded from patentability if, when running on a computer, it causes a further "technical effect" going beyond the "normal" physical interaction between the program (software) and the computer (hardware)
      • Programs for computers are therefore not automatically excluded from patentability
