I am looking to launch a product which has already existed in Australia but failed to make any money at the time. The product was created around 3 years ago but the company seems to have ceased trading now. There is no patent or patent-pending on the product.
It's a utility patent. What would be classed as published material. They have a Facebook page with the product, but no updates on the page since 2013.
Can I still apply for a patent on the idea?
