Plausibility! A New Patentability Requirement?
It seems that this old saying applies to Patent Examiners in charge of evaluating inventiveness and of innovating in examination processes. Recently, the concept "plausibility" began to swipe up in many prosecution stories.
In general terms, plausibility could be understood as a patentability condition that addresses the question of whether there is sufficient evidence, technical knowledge in the state of the art and in the teaching of the disclosure of the invention to conclude that the technical problem can indeed be solved by the proposed technical solution.
