Definitions for "Novelty"
A condition required for patents to be granted, and for designs to be registrable; an invention or design must not have been made public, anywhere in the world, before the filing date (or priority date)(FR:Nouveauté, IT:Novità)
Condition foreseen by the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV) in its convention as well as by the European Union in its Regulation (EC) 2100/94 on Community plant variety rights in order to grant a breeder's right. A plant variety will be new if, at the date of the filing of the application for a breeder's right, propagating or harvested material of the variety has not been sold or otherwise disposed of to others, by or with the consent of the breeder, for purposes of exploitation of the variety. This novelty requirement does not relate to the condition of novelty foreseen for patents and designs. (FR:Nouveauté (Droits d'obtenteur de variétés), IT:Novità (diritti dei costituenti di varietà vegetali) )
An invention or design is novel if it has not been publicly disclosed, whether in a document (such as an earlier patent) or by use, anywhere in the world before a patent application is filed. For a patent application to be granted, the invention claimed must be novel. Before filing a patent or registered design application, it is essential to ensure that there is no non-confidential disclosure, which would render a patent invalid because the invention is already known.
