    I just copied the following from a site on patents.

    Meaning of Novel, Nonobvious, and Useful

    New and Novel: For a United States patent the invention must never have been made public in any way, anywhere in the world, a year before the date on which an application for a patent is filed. In other countries, you have no one year grace period and require absolute novelty.
    Original and Nonobvious: An invention involves an inventive step if, when compared with what is already known, it would not be obvious to someone with a good knowledge and experience of the subject, for example, if you just make cosmetic changes that is obvious.
    Useful: This means that the invention must take the practical form of an apparatus or device, it has to do something.


    Does the above represent something that is non-obvious? Is it really more than a cosmetic modification? Where is the inventive step? Surely it can only represent an inventive step in Lilliput?
