You might know what a patent is and how it benefits your invention, but may still be left wondering "Is my work patentable?"
The answer depends largely on a couple of important variables. In this video, patent attorney Jedi Knight explains in simple language some of the technicalities of the law surrounding what does and does not qualify a patentable work to help you better understand this process.
What you'll find is that much of the qualification for a patent application to gain approval comes down to the question of does this invention solve a new or existing problem in a unique way.
Additionally, you have to determine if your invention would be considered an "Obvious Variation". Meaning you should consider if the difference is a big enough of a change to what's already out there that the invention can be deemed significantly as its own work.
