Our New Bedford patent attorneys & lawyers can help you file a provisional patent, which lasts for 1-year and allows you to immediately begin using/manufacturing your invention with the confidence that your idea is protected. These types of patents are great if you think your idea will change a lot over the next year before you file a (non-provisional) patent.

Inventive Step

  • 5 min read

What Is the Inventive Step?

The inventive step is used to find out if the patent is in fact for a new item or just an obvious improvement on an existing item. Inventive steps make sure patents aren't awarded to existing inventions that the "inventor" just improved upon. These patents could allow someone to make money off of an item just because they tweaked it. This patent could also allow them to sue companies that improve their own processes just because they made small changes as well.

The applicant must prove that the improvement isn't obvious to people within the industry and that there are actually improvements that come with patenting the idea.

One of the key words when talking about the inventive step is "obvious." Many people also refer to the inventive step as the "non-obviousness clause." The EPO defines this as going beyond the expectations of technology, instead of just following the next natural step.
