          Status of Disclosed Claims

          Find out how each independent claim is disclosed with its cited prior art and its specification to discover potential §112 issues.


          Potential §102 and §103 Prior Art

          The potential prior art references are generated from the prior art aggregators in Quality Insights, including Family Prior Art, Prior Art Finder, and Semantic Prior Art. All of the recommended references are applicable as prior art and were never considered before.

            • Potential 102 is generated from:
              §102 prior art of family members
              §102 prior art in the 2nd and 3rd degree prior art list
            • Potential 103 is generated from:
              §103 prior art of family members
              Non-§102 prior art in the 2nd and 3rd degree prior art list
              Highly-relevant Semantic prior art references
