I am looking to use my UK-B application below to file a new PCT-B so that I do not have to prove novelty and inventiveness over the PCT1.
1) UK-A filed on 05/19 now withdrawn without being published 2) PCT-A filed on 05/20 claiming priority from UK-A 3) UK-B filed on 06/20 4) PCT-A published on 07/20
Is there really a way to do that?
I have been told that even if I withdraw my PCT-A priority claim over UK-A and even if I abandon my PCT-A and even if I claim priority for my PCT-B over my UK-B, I will still have to prove novelty and inventiveness over the PCT-A, but I do not really understand it.
Can anyone advise please?
PS: I am interested in EU and US mainly.
