See if you can pass a simple quiz on the DAS system

Here’s a simple quiz about the DAS system.  Pass this quiz and it means you know quite a bit about DAS.

Okay so we are working with US application number 62/411,157 which was filed October 21, 2016.  The confirmation number is 7609.

Part 1 of the quiz is for you to “add tracking” in DAS so that you would hear about it if a patent office were to retrieve this particular application as an electronic certified copy.  As a hint, you would among other things be logged in to the DAS system and you would see an “add tracking” button like the one quoted at right.

If you have successfully “added tracking” for this application in DAS, give yourself ten points and proceed with the quiz.

Part 2 of the quiz is to figure out the date upon which this application first became available in DAS.  Write down this date on a piece of paper and later I will tell you the correct answer.

If you think you have successfully figured out the exact date in November of 2016 upon which this application first became available in DAS, and if you have written it down on your piece of paper, proceed with the quiz.

Part 3 of the quiz is to figure out how many Offices can retrieve this application using the DAS access code.  If you think you have correctly figured out this number, write it down on the piece of paper and proceed with the quiz.  Hint:  to find out this information you would view a Certificate of Availability for this application.

Part 4 of the quiz is to figure out whether any Office has actually accessed this application in DAS.  The answer might be “no” or it might be “yes”.  Write down what you think the answer is on your piece of paper.

Okay so now you have written down several things on your piece of paper.  Click here to see the correct answers and to score your results.
