A method for setting protection states of optical disc media is provided. The method includes setting a first protection state for the optical disc media. A second protection state which is configured to replace the first protection state is then set for the optical disc media. After the second protection state is set, a third protection state which is configured to replace the second protection state is set for the optical disc media. The first protection state is configured to replace the third protection state. Thus, the method also includes reverting from the third protection state back to the first protection state. The reverting is configured to skip a transition through the second protection state. Furthermore, a user may cycle through the first protection state, the second protection state and the third protection state as the user deems necessary.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
