Assume Patent A was filed on Dec. 1, 2002 in the USA, which claims its foreign priority date Jan. 1, 2002. The priority application was filed on Jan. 1, 2002 in Spain.
Assume Patent B was filed on Oct. 1, 2002, and its priority date Oct. 1, 2002.
My question is: Does Patent A filed in the USA serve as pre-AIA 102(a) prior art or pre-AIA 102(e)(2) prior art? Why? Thanks!
