Best Practice Tip: Who Should Be Named as the "Applicant" for Incoming Foreign-Originated Applications?

WW Blog.PNG35 USC 119(a) is the statute that allows one (an individual, entity, etc.) to claim priority to an earlier "priority" application in another country. However, this statute appears to have been written for the pre-AIA regime in which US Applicants were always the Inventors. Because this is no longer the case, applicability to a regime in which we name Assignees as Applicants is a little more complicated.
