Family-izer 2.5 adds two columns of statistical info

Version 2.5 of Family-izer™ adds two columns of statistical information. The first column shows the total number of family members (sure beats counting them by hand!). For the "International" option, the second column shows the number of unique countries and/or regions that are in the family. This gives a rough sense of the scope of foreign filing for a patent. For the "US only" option, the second column will always be blank.

Try Family-izer today!
