Definition Edit

U.S. patent law Edit

Long-felt need refers to a problem facing a particular technical area that has gone unsolved for a prolonged period. The presumption is if the solution had been obvious to a person having ordinary skill in the art, they would have solved the problem. Long-felt need is a way to get past the obviousness requirement for patentability.
