What requirements should a patent met?

There are three requirements:

  • Novelty: the invention is not in the prior state of art
  • Inventive step: the invention cannot be obvious for an expert in the field taking into account the state of the art.
  • Industrial applicability

Generally the Patent Offices evaluate the first two, whereas is assumed that the market itself evaluates the third one.
