Hi Bill,

Ok, great. What was the problem?

It would absolutely count as prior art. Anything publically disclosed — even in different languages — before the priority date counts. The prosecution history will have Information Disclosure Statements (IDS) where prior art is considered. If your source was considered, it will be in one of the IDSs.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
