An invention is a new and useful idea, product, process and device or a new and useful improvement upon one of these which will lead to the solution to a specific problem in the field of technology.
An invention is potentially patentable if it satisfies all three of the following:
Novelty: The invention must be novel.
Non-Obviousness: The invention must not, at the time it was made, be considered obvious to a person of "ordinary skill" in the field of the invention.
Utility: The invention must be useful and beneficial. More info https://sciencepark.upm.edu.my/researcher/intellectual_property_right-6206
Anything that is readily available to the public that describes the basic ideas in enough detail that someone else would be able to make and use the invention is considered a public disclosure.
Public disclosures can take place in many different forms, for example, journal papers, abstracts, conference presentations, showcases/exhibitions, publications on websites or even dissertations indexed at the library.
Showing or telling these ideas may also constitute disclosure, as does selling or offering for sale a prototype of the invention.
