A system and/or method enables a typical PC user to add electronic paper processing to their existing business process. The system and/or method extends the notion of copying from paper passing through a conventional copier, to a process that involves scanning paper from a first device and copying the image of that paper to a remotely-located second device. The system and/or method can optionally copy paper from a first device directly into a business application residing on a network or on the Internet, or visa versa. The system and/or method includes software that manages paper so that it can be electronically and seamlessly copied in and out of devices and business applications without needing to modify the devices or applications.
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.
