Exam Question 4     (PRG Chapter 26, Question 22)  
 
WRONG  
 
Mr. Kanayama, a citizen and resident of Japan, invented a new compound and filed a Japanese patent application, in the Japanese language, on December 1, 1999.  On June 1, 2001, that application was published by the Japanese Patent Office in Japanese.  Meanwhile, on November 30, 2000, Mr. Kanayama filed an International Application on his new composition in the Japanese Receiving Office, designating a number of countries, including Japan and the United States.  That International Application properly claimed priority to the Japanese application pursuant to Article 8 of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT).  On June 1, 2001, the International Application was published by the International Bureau in Japanese pursuant to PCT Article 21(2)(a).  On July 1, 2002, while the International Application was pending, Mr. Kanayama filed a U.S. nonprovisional application on his new composition in the USPTO, properly claiming priority to both the Japanese and International applications.  All claims in the U.S. application are fully supported by the specifications filed in the Japanese and International applications.  
 
When will the term for the patent granted on the US application end?

IA filing is post-November 29 2000, but we don't get an earlier priority date of December 1 1999 as this filing was foreign, and so we can only claim priority back to the IA, so... 11-30-20?
