Hi, I have a question about Priority Date vs Filing Date. If i come upon a patent filed after  04/10/2000 but with a PRIORITY DATE of 1999 or even earlier. Is it still relevant to you? I am new to this platform.


Andy ChuHi Jun! Welcome to Patexia then! We're glad you're trying out our platform. If the US patent has an earliest effective filing date before 4/10/2000 (or the priority date), then we're good! Otherwise, for all other patents, we go by the international publication date. Hope that helps!
