Question: Can I get a patent on this so others will not copy and sell it as their own product or is it too basic to worry about?
Question Detail: I have an idea to manufacture a product to market and sell basic ingredients with each having their own benefits but I want to put them together in one capsule. Can you patent 1+1+1=3 for example? Again, each individual ingredient has its own positive beneficial health properties but I want to put them together in a capsule form. I am thinking of selling this product in Asia. Are USA patent laws recognized in Asia?
Answer: Many inventions are an aggregation of already known components. Whether you can get a patent on the aggregation of components will depend in part on whether it would have been obvious to aggregate the components in the way you have done so.
Patent laws are country dependent. Therefore, a patent in the US is not of effect in Asia.
