The CRI uses the year while the provisional application is pending to continue commercialization and marketing efforts. Depending on the results of such efforts, as well as the status of the technology, CRI may or may not pursue a non-provisional application.

While any non-provisional application is pending, the CRI will continue commercialization and marketing efforts. Depending on the commercialization process, as well as the patent process, the CRI may decide not to continue patent prosecution of any given patent application. At that time, the inventor(s) will be notified and should the inventors wish to pursue patent protection on their own and at their own expense, they may contact the CRI, who will assist in this process.
