Labeled baggage includes a label with a non-fibrous polymer layer, visible indicia on the obverse of the label and an adhesive layer on the reverse of the label that bonds the label to a piece of baggage. The label sticks to the baggage during ordinary use, yet can be removed at room temperature, without the use of solvents, and without damaging the baggage. High or low friction materials can be used for the label surface to enhance or retard the tendency of the baggage to slide, as desired. Generally the labels are on an outside, conspicuous, surface of the baggage; but labels can also be placed on an inner surface of the baggage.
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.
