An earlier article of Karen Canaan's, also posted to FizzLaw, addresses foreign filing licenses generally. This article complements the earlier one by discussing the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and how the EAR requires that certain technologies must remain in the US and under the control of US nationals prior to the granting of a foreign filing license in a US patent application. In short, the EAR prevents companies from sending US invention disclosures overseas, or from allowing foreign national in the US from seeing the US invention, prior to the filing of a foreign filing license if the subject matter of the invention relates to certain technologies set forth in the EAR.
