IP Section Lunch: Restoration of Priority -- What Will Change on December 18, 2013?
Date and Time: Noon on Tuesday, November 19, 2013
Location: Denver Chophouse
Speaker: Carl Oppedahl is a partner in Oppedahl Patent Law Firm LLC
A client comes to you on December 20, 2013. The client filed a US provisional patent application on December 17, 2012. Clearly the one-year period has come and gone! What should you tell them about their ability to file a PCT patent application that claims priority from the US provisional patent application? How does your answer change if the application to be filed is a US non-provisional patent application? How do your answers change if the would-be priority application filed December 17, 2012 was a foreign patent application instead of a US provisional patent application? (Hint: Everything you knew about this is wrong!) Extra credit if you can say why it might be smart to file the PCT patent application in the Receiving Office of the International Bureau of WIPO rather than at the USPTO.
