2462 Ex Parte YU et al 12557944 - (D) HORVATH 103 THE FARRELL LAW FIRM, P.C. RUSSELL, WANDA Z

Appellants argue Saban's only priority claim is to the '154 Application because the last priority claim Saban made prior to being published was to the '154 Application, and to the extent Saban made an inconsistent priority claim to the '157 Application in his Declaration, the priority claim made in the ADS is controlling. ... We are not persuaded by Appellants' argument.
...
Through § 119(e)(1), Congress has expressly indicated that when an application is filed for an invention previously disclosed in a provisional application and contains a specific reference to that provisional application, it shall have the same effect as if it was filed on the same date as the provisional application provided (1) it is filed within 12 months of the filing date of the provisional application, (b) it names an inventor or inventors named in the provisional application, and (c) its invention is disclosed in the provisional application in the manner required by 35 U.S.C. § 112(a) (except for the best mode requirement). See 35 U.S.C. § 119(e)(1)
...

Therefore, we find that because Saban has complied with all statutory requirements for claiming priority to the '157 Application, including continuously containing a specific reference to the '157 Application in its Specification since its filing date, Saban "shall have the same effect ... as though filed on the date of the ['157] provisional application." 35 U.S.C. § 119(e)(1) (emphasis added).  When Congress speaks to a precise question at issue, as it has in 35 U.S.C. § 119(e)(1), and "the intent of Congress is clear, that is the end of the matter; for the court, as well as the agency, must give effect to the unambuously expressed intent of Congress."  Chevron, U.S.A., Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc., 467 U.S. 837, 842-843 (1984).
