Because the AIA does make foreign priority claims relevant, the USPTO will now require that any correction of the identification of the foreign application (by application number, country, intellectual property authority, and filing date) in a foreign priority claim after the time period for filing a priority or benefit claim be via a petition to accept an unintentionally delayed priority claim. Once the petition is granted in a pending application there will be a publication of a corrected patent application publication reflecting the accurate foreign priority claim information.
