請問有多個 CIP 案的專利過期時間??

請問各位先進:
小弟膏入門專利 在查專利因遇到CIP案不知道如何判斷專利期限時間
煩請各位先進能幫忙解答

問題:請問美國專利號 US5486949 專利期限到哪時候??

美國專利號 US5486949 filled:1990.11.26 issued:1996.1.23
因為是CIP案 列出相關母案專利
CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
This application is a continuation in part of U.S. application Ser. No 463,645 filed Jan. 11, 1990, now U.S. Pat. No. 5,122,906, and is also a continuation in part of U.S. application Ser. No .466,168, filed Jan. 17, 1990, now U.S. Pat. No. 5,122,905, both of which applications are themselves continuations in part of U.S. application Ser. No. 368,695, filed Jun. 20, 1989, now abandoned.

其中這兩篇ISSUED的母案又是Ser. No. 07/368,695的CIP案,兩ISSUED的母案資料如下
(A)
U.S. Pat. No. 5,122,906 filled 1990.1.17 issued 1992.6.16 Notice:The portion of the term of this patent subsequent to to 2009.6.16 has
been disclaimed
CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
This application is a continuation-in-part of U.S. application Ser. No. 07/368,695, Filed June 20, 1989, now abandoned.

(B)
U.S. Pat. No. 5,122,905 filled 1990.1.11 issued 1992.6.16
CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
This application is a continuation-in-part of U.S. application Ser. No. 07/368,695, Filed June 20, 1989, now abandoned.

請問專利號 US5486949 的專利期限
是以CIP母案沒放棄的案件時間來計算 application Ser. No 463,645 filed Jan. 11, 1990 +20=2010.1.11 ?
還是最早已放棄的母案計算 application Ser. No. 368,695, filed Jun. 20, 1989 +20年 = 2009.6.20?
還是ISSUED 1996.1.23+17年=2013.1.23 ??
哪個日期才是專利的過期時間??煩請先進指導解惑 ,謝謝

應該以母案來計算吧。這是我根據我我歐洲以及中國大陸專利法推

應該以母案來計算吧。這是我根據我我歐洲以及中國大陸專利法推測的,我還沒有系統學習過美國的專利法:)

35 U.S.C. 154 Contents and term of patent; provisional rights. - Patent Laws

(2) TERM.-Subject to the payment of fees under this title, such grant shall be for a term "beginning" on the date on which the patent issues and ending 20 years from the date on which the application for the patent was filed in the United States or, if the application contains a specific reference to an earlier filed application or applications under section 120, 121, or 365(c) of this title, from the date on which the "earliest" such application was filed.

35 USC 154
僅考慮母案是否為“filed”,沒考慮母案是否核准、放棄、撤銷等。

35 U.S.C. Section 154 (c)-(1):
DETERMINATION.--The term of a patent that is in force on or "that results from" an application filed before the date (1995/6/8 ) that is 6 months after the date of the enactment of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act shall be the greater of the 20-year term as provided in subsection (a), or 17 years from grant, subject to any terminal disclaimers .

1995/6/8前所申請的案子,隨後取得專利權,其專利期可以為獲准專利權後的17年。
以本例來看,應是 ISSUED 1996.1.23+17年=2013.1.23
