I file for a patent in Canada and US. if someone files a patent in China before me, can I still 'publish' idea in China?
Is this patent application granted, abandonded or pending? Which countries does it cover? Are there family members?
Are there people who constantly look up newly granted patents in one country so that they can use it in another country?
Can I file in france if I file a Provisional in the US and then publicly disclose prior to filing in France?
