Appendix: List of administrative fees

Variable symbols and numbering of applications for topographies of semiconductor products
The application number is designated: PTO, four-digit year of filing, dash and serial number
For example: PTO 2000-8, 2007-10
The variable symbol (VS) consists of the digit 4 + year (four digits) + application serial number
For example: for PTO 2000-8, VS is: 420008; for PTO 2007-10, VS is: 4200710
