What does Novinium mean?
What does Novinium mean? Is there a language derivation, or is it fictitious?
Don’t you speak Latin? “Nôvî” is Latin for “to get knowledge of, become acquainted with, come to know, learn, discern” or “novîs” is Latin for “new, not old, young, fresh, recent” … I like to combine the two ideas into “fresh knowledge”. Finally the “-inium” suffix means “belong to; be involved in; material; element”, so combining all three ideas gets you “fresh knowledge of materials,” which I believe is a fine moniker for a company that has changed the face of rejuvenation. As of today, June 9, 2010, Novinium has nine granted and active* U.S. patents on cable rejuvenation technology and still more pending. That is more active* U.S. patents than all the other rejuvenation patent holders in the world combined! The King is dead, long live the King! Ipso facto, fresh material knowledge—Novinium.
*An active patent is an unexpired patent in which the claims are being practiced.
