grace period for CIP disclosure
« on: Mar 19th, 2007, 2:52pm »

I understand that for a new patent app, there is a one year of grace period after publicly disclosing the patent..
 
I have a case which concerns new disclosure in a CIP. The additional disclosure contains subject matter that can be intepreted as merely clarifying what is in the old disclosure.. but to eliminate any potential uncertainty, would it make sense for me to make publicly available  the new (additional) disclosure for a CIP?  
 
If I write down the disclosure and gets it notarized, would that help?

After disclosing the "invention", yes.  It depends upon what the invention is and what is disclosed.

If I understand what you're saying, it doesn't work that way.  There's no need to disclose the contents of the CIP at all, except they'll be disclosed in due time by the PTO.

Again, if I understand what you're saying, you're concerned about the date of invention, not statutory bar dates.
