"Europe, as most countries, operates on a first-to-file system instead of the first-to-invent system used by the U.S.'
 
Ok so I'm still trying to find out if prior-art 1 year or greater invalidates their patent in IT or most European states? Guess I can't understand what first to file means. To me it means they don't care who invented it first, it only who patented it first and that person is who filed first. Can you explain what part I'm missing.
 
thx
