A measurement of an object from which data is collected may be determined. A scale of the object may be determined by determining the absolute or relative magnitude of the object in comparison to a magnitude of surrounding objects such as the total magnitude of the illustration. An appropriate container shape and size for the object may be determined by searching for a container size with a scale similar to the scale of the object. The object may be stored in a database with the appropriate container shape, size and the scale being attributes.
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.
