I was looking up some prior art that reads, "Termination of patent right or utility model", in the LEGAL EVENT notice on the patent document. what does this mean? why would/could it say this?

  • Could you provide an example? – DonQuiKong Jun 9 '17 at 21:04
  • Please list the patent number. – Eric S Jun 12 '17 at 1:03
  • If you are looking at a document only for prior art purposes, its publication date matters but its legal status does not. – George White Jun 13 '17 at 21:59
