A method of creating an electronic file corresponding to a printed artifact may include receiving an image file of a document page. The method may include analyzing the image file to detect a potential form identifier on the document page and automatically (without human intervention) performing a search to identify an actual form that corresponds to the potential form identifier. The method may further include validating that the image file is of a document page that corresponds to the actual form, locating a probable fill-in field on the document page and mapping the probable fill-in field to an actual fill-in field of the actual form.
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.
