I published four months before them
They filed for patent eight months after I published
Can I claim their patent?
Also I submitted an very similar patent two months before I published. I am just one man and don't have resources to really submit a thorough patent. The idea I published was more scientific so my patent publication into more of a applicable hardware device, because I don't understand what is "patentable".
The other patent was filed by a University 8 months after my publication.
Is there any argument explaining that obviously if I had resources such as a University. I would have filed my patent before them.
Do I have a case?
