This is a really simple library for accesing the libpatent api.
As of 1/2016 the api is no longer available because of substantial changes at libpatent.com however it will be restored shortly.
Probably not useful unless you are a libpatent client.
With an API key this library offers a facility in ruby to begin a patent re-examination.
Automatically initiate a libpatent re-examination effort upon parsing a patent threat.
Download the gem so as not to pollute the gem namespace.
gem install libpatent
lp = Libpatent.new(:api_key => YOUR_API_KEY)
lp.re_examine 7028023, 'http://yourhostname.com/notify_status_here' # Note optional callback
'Re-examination Request Submitted.'
Note: It may take a while before the callback receives post request with a "current_status" parameter describing action taken on the re-exam.
