In certain cases the novelty requirement may not be as hard to achieve as the inventiveness requirement. To establish novelty, size considerations may be enough to distinguish the technology from the prior art. However non-obviousness can be more problematic. Nanotechnology patenting needs a thorough examination of such facts, which makes this area of scientific endeavour more complex from legal point of view.
Keywords: nano, patent, semiconductor, novelty, non-obviousness.
