I previously asked this question: I have filed non provisional, regular utility patents applications. I will be also filing continuation applications. Can I add or amend claims after the content is made public? Such as in a crowd funding campaign?
I received answers for this question, I'm asking for responses to this new part.
I believe that new material can be added in the continuations, and that the new material will have the continuations filing date, not the original application's filing date.
New part of question: Can I... 1. ...file a Provisional Patent for the new material... 2. ...go public with all the info contained in the various filings... 3. ...then later file the continuations, based on the new material in the Provisional?
I would do this because, I believe,... 1. ... it would allow me to protect my added information... 2. ...while going public to raise funding... 3. ...giving me more time to come up with the fees needed for the continuation filings.
I understand that the provisional would not alter the time limits for the continuation filings.
