REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF CORRECTION OF PATENT 
FOR PTO MISTAKE 

Assistant Commissioner for Patents 
Attn: Decision and Certificate of Correction Branch 
of the Patent Issue Division 

Washington, D.C. 20231 

Sir: 

It is respectfully requested that a Certificate of Correction be issued for the 
patent identified in the heading. The patent contains an error that occurred through the 
fault of the Patent Office as follows: 

Title Page, column 1, at [86], change "October 19, 2006" to -December 

15, 2005--. 

Applicants have enclosed a copy of the Request for Correction of Filing 
Receipt electronically filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on December 8.

2006. In that Request, Applicants noted that the filing date was erroneously recorded. 
Specifically, the Patent Office accorded the filing date of October 19, 2006 apparently 
under the mistaken belief that a translation of PCT/AU04/000772 was filed on that date. 
However, PCT/AU04/000772 was published in English and, therefore, an English 
translation was not required. Therefore, in accordance with Applicants' prior request, a 
Certificate of Correction is now in order, and respectfully solicited, in order to correct the 
filing date of this patent. 

This request is made under 37 C.F.R. §§ 1 .322 to correct the mistake. In 
accordance with the established procedure for handling such certificates, PTO-1050 is 
enclosed herewith listing the error. 

Applicants do not believe that any other fees are due in connection with 
this submission. However, if such petition is due or any fees are necessary, the 
Commissioner may consider this to be a request for such and charge any necessary 
fees to deposit account 23-3000. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WOOD, HERRON & EVANS, L.L.P.

IN THE UNITED STATES PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE 



Applicants: Boydan Joseph Mudryk et al. 

Serial No: 10/561,123 

Filing Date: December 1 5, 2005 

Art Unit: 3671 

Title: ROADSIDE POST

Commissioner for Patents 

P.O. Box 1450

Sir: 

REQUEST FOR CORRECTION OF FILING RECEIPT 

The filing date of October 19, 2006 has been erroneously recorded. 

This application is a U.S. national phase application of 
PCT/AU04/000772. The above-referenced application was deposited as Express Mail 
in Cincinnati, Ohio on December 15, 2005 as acknowledged by the U.S. Patent and 
Trademark Office. Apparently, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office accorded a filing 
date of October 19, 2006 under the mistaken belief that a "translation" of 
PCT/AU04/000772 was filed on that date. 

More specifically, a Notice to File Missing Requirements was mailed by 
the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on September 1, 2006. In that Notice, the U.S. 
Patent and Trademark Office requested that Applicants provide an English "translation" 



of the application. As specifically pointed out in Applicants' response filed on October 
19, 2006, PCT/AU 04/000772 was filed and published in English and therefore an 
English translation was not required upon the filing of this national phase application. A 
copy of the PCT publication was filed with the response dated October 19, 2006. The 
Notice of Acceptance itself states that the International Application was received in the 
U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as of December 15. 2005 and the published 
International Application states on the title page that the filing language was English . 
Therefore, the requirement by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for Applicants to 
provide an English "translation" was and remains improper. All requirements necessary 
to receive a filing date under 35 U.S.C. § 371 were met upon filing of this application. 
Therefore, the filing date of this application should be changed to December 15, 2005 
and a corrected Filing Receipt should now issue. 

Applicants do not believe that any fees are due in connection with this 
submission. However, if such petition is due or any fees are necessary, the 
Commissioner may consider this to be a request for such and charge any necessary 
fees to deposit account 23-3000. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WOOD, HERRON & EVANS, L.L.P.
