A method is carried out by a controller (100), a social network (200), a provider (300) and a terminal (400) of a primary user (450). After a trust relationship is set up (s10) between the controller (300) and social network (200), the terminal (400) accesses (s20) the provider (300). The provider (300) transmits (s30) to the terminal (400) a proposal to provide information relating to the provider (300) to secondary users of the primary user in the social network (200). If the terminal (400) accepts (s40) the proposal, the provider (300) transmits (s30) to the controller (100) a message including the information relating to the provider (300). The controller (300) obtains identification of the primary user (450) to whom the message relates and triggers (s70) transmission, to the secondary users, of the information relating to the provider (300). A controller (100), a system (500) and computer programs are also disclosed.
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.
