I think I'm following you here CriterionD. But if the patent examiner finds printed publication overseas what law says I can't patent it unless it infringes on another U.S patent? ( Assuming the company sells me the ingredients and do not own a Foreign Patent)  How will the U.S be affected by the other country?
 
 

 
Rather than explaining the law further myself - check here:

In terms of logic, it has to do with ensuring that patented subject matter is truly novel and not copied from a source others have access to, as well as perhaps supporting a patent applicant's rights to foreign commercial exploitation on a more general, global level.
 
Patent law is designed to encourage innovation, and hence it is designed to protect the inventor, not just any random person who has a business idea.
