Today, I have a question about claiming a priority under the Paris Convention for an international design application to Japan.
Yes, that’s right.
What is the second one?
That’s because it seems to be forgot easily and there would still be a lot of applicants who do not know it.
But, the Office will notify us the deadline for submitting it…right?
That’s why it’s very important.
Although most foreign applicants are not familiar with the Japanese practice, they must remember to file it without any reminders!
I strongly recommend you to consult a good attorney in Japan well before proceeding with filing an international application designating Japan.
