Machine automated techniques are described for a method of data processing called Relationships Processing. A computing system is disclosed which provides for the high speed recording and extraction of data objects (entities) and for the development of data representing a queried relationship between the entities. Furthermore, methods and systems are disclosed to detect mandatory relations violation between entities by examining whether certain relations exist. The system is expandable to handle the relatively voluminous data bases of large commercial data repositories. A user defines a set of entities and allowed relationships between the entities. The user can expand this set of allowed entities and relationships at any time during the life of the system without reprogramming or compiling of computer program code or disrupting concurrent operational use of the system. Large systems can now be built that are no longer limited to the scope of design requirements known during initial system development. For a given set of defined relationships the system allows the user to perform complex inquiries (again without programming at the code level) that would normally require multiple nested inquiries to be coded programmatically and would not achieve the performance levels of the Relationships Processor.
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.
