novelty

novelty
In order that there may be "novelty" so as to sustain a patent, the thing must not have been known to any one before; mere novelty of form being insufficient. Seaver v. Wm. Filene's Sons Co., D.C.Mass., 37 F.Supp. 762, 765.
An invention or discovery is new or possesses requisite element of "novelty" if it involve the presence of some element, or the new position of an old element in combination, different from anything found in any prior structure. King-Seeley Thermos Co. v. Refrigerated Dispensers, Inc., C.A.Okl., 354 F.2d 533, 537.
Novelty, in respect to design terminology, is present when the average observer takes the new design for a different and not just a modified already existing design. Schnadig Corp. v. Gaines Mfg. Co., Inc., C.A.Tenn., 494 F.2d 383, 389.
An objection to a patent or claim for a patent on the ground that the invention is not new or original is called an objection "for want of novelty."
