So long as the new title meets the requirements for patent titles, there should be no problem. Keep in mind that suggested changes to the title may be made to you, so it is already possible that the title will change after your non-provisional has been reviewed. The title -- name -- of the invention isn't the invention, it is a clear and concise description ...

No, there is absolutely no way to include anything new in any patent application anywhere, no matter what the reason is, once the application has been filed. Your best option is to nationalize the PCT application in the US. You could claim priority to the PCT application, too, but in Europe that would be only valid for the new matter introduced there. I ...

Note - If you are not in the U.S. you need to file the PCT application either with the IB in Geneva or with your local patent office, not with the USPTO.

You might want to do something to keep the 80 that are not in the U.S. application from being considered "new matter" if you ever wanted to ...

EFS-Web is not very user friendly. You probably already looked at the USPTO's guide to EFS-Web. I don't think the EBC Help Desk people - who are very patient and helpful, will be much help with actual decisions, more the mechanics of uploading. The PDF files need to be 8.5" by 11" (or A4) and have names that are EFS-Web legal. If a PDF is somehow 8.25" by ...

Some last minute things you might check are that - you are filing a specification, claims and drawings. The first sentence of the application needs to correctly claim priority to previous applications and incorporate them by reference if that is desirable (that is not fixable after filing without refiling). Every item in a drawing that has a reference ...
