We will also examine the intricacies of handling an application that would appear to have an effective filing date of pre-AIA implementation but, due to later added claims, may get swept into the category of an application subject to the new AIA rules and prior art definitions because it contains or ever contained a claim not entitled to a filing date before March 16, 2013.
