RE: Are people really using Identity constraints specified in
Len, I'm not sure CAM can claim to replace laywers! Remember we're still at the first-land-animals stage of evolution with XML. So we can only do simple clerkical stuff - like check that the amendment is for a patent # that is assigned to you, and that the # is in the right format, and so on - we are doing good. Also - we can have CAM templates each for the different layouts that go with steps in the process - so things that might be required in an initial application and then optional, and so on. Getting the structural nuances right is often 9/10ths of the battle. Reasoning about content itself and its meaning is what Tim's going to get his OBE for, now he at least has a knighthood already ; -) Thanks, DW =============================================================== Quoting len Would CAM not be useful in the discovery process to ensure that appropriate and necessary interrogative transactions are occurring? IOW, I might not use it to transact business with the Patent Office given an uncontested patent. But there are rules of order with respect to documents that have to be submitted given the comment period, so I might want notifications and have the means to determine appropriate responses. It could save money spent on patent attorneys. Where one finds a a lawyer, one finds a context. <futureProof> XML: tech that devolved from tech designed by a lawyer to help other lawyers into a tech that obsoletes lawyers. </futureProof> len
