ACTS NOW IN FORCE.

AN ACT

TO REGULATE THE ISSUING OF PATENTS.

Be it Enacted by the King and the Legislative Assembly of the Hawaiian Islands, in the Legislature of the Kingdom Assembled :

SECTION 1. All patents shall be issued in the name of His Majesty the King, under the Seal of the Interior Department, and shall be signed by the Minister of Interior and countersigned by the Commissioner of Patents, and they shall be recorded together with the specifications in the office of the Interior Department in books kept for the purpose.

SECTION 2. Every patent shall contain a short title or description of the invention or discovery, correctly indicating its nature and design, and a grant to the patentee, his heirs or assigns for the term of ten[A] years, of the exclusive right to make, use and vend the invention or discovery throughout the Hawaiian Islands, referring to the specification for the particulars thereof. A copy of the specifications and drawings shall be annexed to the patent and be a part thereof.

SECTION 3. Any person who has invented or discovered any new and useful art, machine, manufacture, process or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof not known or used by others in this country, and not patented (or described in any printed publication) in this or any foreign country before his invention or discovery thereof, may, upon payment of the fees required by law, and other due proceedings had, obtain a patent therefor. Provided, however, that any person who has invented or discovered any new and useful art, machine, manufacture, process or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof, and has received a patent or patents therefor from any foreign government may also obtain a patent therefor in this country as provided above, unless the thing patented has been introduced into public use in the Hawaiian Islands for more than one year prior to the application for a patent. But every patent granted for an invention which has been previously patented in a foreign country, shall be so limited that it shall not continue longer than the time of the expiration of such foreign patent, or if there are several foreign patents, it shall not continue longer than the time of the expiration of the one with the shortest unexpired term, and in no case shall it be in force more than ten[A] years.

SECTION 4. Before any inventor or discoverer shall receive a patent for his invention or discovery he shall apply therefor in writing to the Minister of Interior, and shall file in the office of the Interior Department a written description of the same and of the manner and process of making, compounding and using it, in clear, concise and exact terms and in case of a machine he shall explain the principle thereof and of the manner in which he has applied that principle so as to distinguish it from other inventions, and he shall particularly point out and distinctly claim the part, improvement or combination which he claims as his invention or discovery. When the nature of the case admits of drawings the applicant shall furnish them as set forth in Section 2. When the invention or discovery is of a composition of matter, the applicant shall furnish a specimen of ingredients and of the composition, sufficient in quantity for the purpose of experiment. In all cases which admit of representation by model, the applicant shall, if required, furnish a model of convenient size to exhibit advantageously the several parts of his invention.

SECTION 5. The applicant shall make oath that he believes himself to be the original and first inventor or discoverer of the art, machine, manufacture, composition or improvement for which he solicits a patent, and that, he does not know or believe that the same was ever before known or used, and shall state of what country he is a citizen...
