  This post was first published on 2nd September, 2014.   Inventive step / Non-Obviousness is one of the most important patentability criteria in almost all patent jurisdictions.

However, in one case, the entire process, from the filing of the patent application to the grant of patent has taken less than 7 months. This particular patent application pertained to Leafy Straws, as the inventor called them, which were made of...
