Can I "Own" Yoga Method?
What about patent law? A patent is granted for a novel process or device that is not obvious to people who are skilled in the field. Although there's little novelty in spreading carnations or turning up the thermostat, some inventions associated with yoga can acquire patent protection. If you seek to patent a yoga method, keep in mind that there's the possibility of bad press, as well as high patent fees and enforcement costs.
