Brad: This is a follow up question to a post I sent earlier. I still can't login to reply with a follow up question. I just refiled a provisional in May 2013 to reflect some new uses of the device. The origional was filed Jan. 2013.  I refiled with new information, changed nothing to the first one, and have not shown it. Which date will I have to adhere to? Thanks for your help it really is helpful. Respectfully Dave  p.s. you could attach this post to my original post if you like.

Hi Dave,

Sorry about the forum login issues.  The forum is running on a different database from the main website so you would have to create a new login/password to use the forum (or you can always post as a guest here without registering).

To be safe I would use your first date (Jan. 2013) as your target date to get your non-provisional filed.  Your non-provisional application would then claim priority (i.e. be linked to) BOTH your Jan. application and your May application.
