A data transmission method utilizing priority-based messaging and providing a storing and forwarding of delayed messages. The method includes receiving messages with an assigned priority at a forwarding relay that are examined for priority and inserted based on assigned priority into FIFO queues provided for each message priority. A file of messages of a priority is assembled and the file is placed in the priority-based queue. The highest priority message is identified and transmitted to the appropriate recipient or stored until the recipient is available or the message deliverable. A next determination of the highest priority message is made and the next message in that priority queue is transmitted. Messages of a lower priority file are sent until a higher priority message is received. Messages for transmittal upstream and downstream of the forwarding relay are received concurrently and priority queues are provided for received upstream and downstream messages.

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.
