Patent owner failed to pay renewal fees in early 2006 which lead to the abandonment of the patent in the same year.
The patent owner petitioned to the Paten Registrar claiming that he had no commercial reason to keep the patent alive during that time and now it seems that there is a commercial probability to the invention.
The Vice Patent Registrar, Mrs. Jackline Bracha, did not restore the patent rights in a foretold decision. Mrs. Bracha stated that she is issuing this decision with deep sadness as the patent owner is a holocaust survivor that has financial problems.
