original acquisition

Original acquisition is that by which a man secures a property in a thing which is not at the time he acquires it, and in its then existing condition, the property of any other individual. It may result from occupancy; accession; intellectual labor-namely, for inventions, which are secured by patent rights; and for the authorship of books, maps, and charts, which is protected by copyrights. An acquisition may result from the act of the party himself, or those who are in his power acting for him, as his children while minors
