I have a question regarding a patent status. I've been searching around to see if there was a similar product to an idea that I recently have. After some digging around, I found one but it's a patent application publication and the current status says "application" The filing date was in 2007 which is almost 11 years ago. Does that mean the application is still under review or has it been abandoned? Also, if not granted can I use their documents to file a patent for my idea? Sorry for this noob question.
