It seems like USPTO allows different embodiments for novelty/anticipation rejections.
So I wanna know how the embodiment will be interpreted.
A provisional patent is filed by "inventor A" in 2010. A non-provisional patent is filed by the same "inventor A" in 2011.
Both Patent has the same embodiment and it offers "meaning A".
An internet standard (RFC) defined in 2015 offers more solutions to the same problem. Because of the words found in the RFC, the embodiment can also be interpreted as "meaning B".
When the examiner use "provisional patent" as a reference for novelty, which date he will use for establishing the novelty interpretation?
2010 or 2015?
