  1. New — No one has done this before in the public arena. It is not just that there are no other patents, but it also cannot appear in any publication or be an invention that is already available.
  2. Useful — The patent has to do something. It must constitute an “inventive solution” for a legitimate use-case.
  3. Not Obvious — The patent cannot just take an invention that already exists and improve it in an obvious way.
