Statutory Invention Registration (SIR) flag.

If this flag is present, the value of the sir-text attribute shall be rendered on the front page of the patent grant publication: "A statutory invention registration is not a patent. It has the defensive attributes of a patent but does not have the enforceable attributes of a patent. No article or advertisement or the like may use the term patent, or any term suggestive of a patent, when referring to a statutory invention registration. For more specific information on the rights associated with a statutory invention registration see 35 U.S.C.157."
