What makes my invention novel?

The answer can be complicated.

Before you find out if your invention is novel, you need a firm grasp of what makes it new. Take a good look at all the related products and technologies and determine what makes your invention different. Did you add a component? Change the order of the steps? Apply the technology in a new field? Before you can determine if your invention is novel you must first know what makes it different than everything else.

The patent process entails negotiating with the patent office. You will need to convince the patent examiner that the flexible guard is not the same thing as the rigid guard or the machine without a guard. What may be more difficult is convincing the examiner that the flexible guard is not obvious in light of the rigid guard. Experienced professional counsel is crucial.
