想請教優先權問題

我有一件專利請台灣案和大陸案
台灣案的申請日是2008/7/1
大陸案的申請日是2008/9/15
想請教是否可以引用大陸案作為美國申請案的優先權呢?
會不會有什麼問題?

(b)(1)No application for patent shall be entitled to this right of priority unless a claim is filed in the Patent and Trademark Office, identifying the foreign application by specifying the application number on that foreign application, the intellectual property authority or country in or for which the application was filed, and the date of filing the application, at such time during the pendency of the application as required by the Director.

依據 35USC 119(a) 的下列文字
... on which the application for patent for the same invention was first filed in such foreign country...

只有台灣申請日 first filed 能被引用作為 US 優先權日

感謝您喔~那假如台灣

感謝您喔~那假如台灣案已經核准~那我在公告後又放棄台灣案的專利權
那這樣還可以引用大陸當優先權ㄇ?

當然不行, on which the application for patent for the same invention was first filed in such foreign country...
35 USC 119 限定只有首次提出專利申請國家可作為優先權母案, 不論該首次申請案最後是否核准.

若你引用大陸優先權取得美國專利, 美國專利核准後去告別人侵害, 被告只要檢索發明人姓名, 因為台灣案都已經核准公告了, 馬上就可以證明你欺騙 USPTO 專利審查委員, 你必須煩惱是否會因為 in-equitable conduct 導致美國專利 un-enforceable 敗訴啦
