U.S. patent law Edit

A statutory bar is a specific act related to an invention which, if performed more than one year prior to the filing of a patent application, will bar the inventor from obtaining a patent on that invention. Examples may include publication anywhere before the filing of the patent application, or public use or on sale before the application filing date.[1]
