New Paper: “PARIS CONVENTION PRIORITY PITFALLS UNDER THE LEAHY SMITH AMERICA INVENTS ACT”

The attached, captioned paper is a draft analysis of procedures to obtain foreign priority rights for Asia and Europe under the Paris Convention, particularly where there are multiple United States prior-filed applications.

The paper focuses upon American inventor rights in Asia and Europe under the Paris Convention, and technical pitfalls where priority rights may be lost.

This is a PRELIMINARY draft circulated for comments.  Indeed, any suggestions for improvements in this analysis would be welcomed.
