Hello, In Brazil we're discussing the legality of mapping postal codes using official data sources and we've found formal communications from the Brazilian Post (EBCT)  saying that the organization has filed a patent on the database with German Patent Applicatations, reference number 10.346.551.0. I've found the application on DPMA's website , but I'm unfamiliar with the terminology, so I'd kindly like to ask you for some help interpreting what it says.
Under "Procedural Data", an "Examination procedure" was started in 2010 and its "Legal/procedural status" was set to "Decision to reject has become final" in 2016. Does that mean that the application was rejected?  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Correios  https://register.dpma.de/DPMAregister/pat/register?AKZ=103465510 -- Fernando Trebien +55 (51) 99962-5409 "Nullius in verba." _______________________________________________ legal-talk mailing list email@example.com https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/legal-talk
