A system and method provide multi-threaded database access simultaneous to a plurality of users. One or more searchable indices are created. The searchable indices each have a B*tree having a plurality of nodes arranged hierarchically from a root node. The system and method maintain a known position for a matching query value within the ordered index using the first key count and the one or more second key counts, and search the one or more searchable indices using the first key count and the one or more second key counts. The plurality of nodes have a modify counter for providing an indication of how many times the node has been altered, a number of keys indicator, a first key count and node pointer pair, one or more second key count and node pointer pairs, and one or more keys. The number of one or more keys and the number of one or more second key count and node pointer pairs is equal to the number provided in the number of keys indicator.
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.
