I have a question concerning US reissue patent RE43748 E1 (based upon US 6787544 B2). The status in PAIR is "Patented Case", it is Continuation-in-part of application No. PCT/JP99/04429, filed on Aug. 18, 1999. No PTA/PTE. As far as I can see the application should be expired since August 18, 2019. So Google Patents
2019-08-18 Anticipated Expiration, Status: Expired - Lifetime
Fees: Window 11.5 Year, Status Closed, Fees Paid, Last Day to Pay 09/07/2016.
Is the application still alive or expired?
Best regards from Karlsruhe, Germany
