exhausted combination

Read a random definition: equal-dignities rule

A quick definition of exhausted combination:

An exhausted combination is when someone tries to patent a combination of elements that have already been patented before. It's like trying to make a new toy by putting together old toys in a different way. Even if the new toy works differently, it might not be considered a new invention because the old toys have already been patented.

A more thorough explanation:

An exhausted combination is a type of combination that has already been patented or used before. It is also known as an old combination. This means that one or more elements in the combination work in a different way but still perform the same function as the corresponding element in a previously patented combination.

For example, if a new invention combines two elements that have already been patented separately, it may be considered an exhausted combination. The new invention may be patentable, but the combination may not be.

Another example of an exhausted combination is when a company forms an alliance with other companies to achieve a common economic goal. This is also known as a combination in restraint of trade.

Overall, an exhausted combination is a combination that has already been used or patented before, and may not be eligible for a new patent.

I always think back to when I was anxious waiting for my lsat results one take. I went to the park and a parent let me play with their kid. I fixed his truck and he was hyped! He told me to “have a good time!” when I left haha. He’s our spirit animal!
