A method of allocating one or more resources to one or more input entities, each of which one or more input entities has one or more input attributes associated therewith, the method comprising the steps of: (i) storing data comprising processed entities and attributes of the processed entities, each of which processed entities has had one or more resources allocated thereto; (ii) deriving groupings of rules from the stored data, which groupings of rules each identify a set of one or more of the stored attributes that are related to the allocation of resources for the processed entities; (iii) for each grouping of rules, assigning at least one resource value to the grouping; (iv) for each input entity, calculating a resemblance value for each previously derived grouping of rules, so as to determine which of the said derived groupings of rules the input entity most closely resembles; (v) allocating a resource allocation in accordance with the grouping determined at step (iv); (vi) monitoring the resemblance value determined at step (iv) for an input entity; and (vii) generating an alert each time a calculated resemblance value falls below a predetermined threshold value.
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.
