Q28. What point or points should be carefully considered when a Japanese design application is filed claiming a priority based on a foreign application?

Q28. What point or points should be carefully considered when a Japanese design application is filed claiming a priority based on a foreign application?

A28. It is basically the same as that to Q26 and the following would have to be particularly considered:
A partial design application, in which only a portion(s) of a design is claimed, is not acceptable in foreign countries that have no partial design registration system (e.g. China). Therefore, it is not allowed to claim a priority based on such an earlier foreign application for a Japanese design application when a partial design application is filed in Japan.
