I think John has made it very clear.

"Those are patent applications, not patents.  There is a large and
important difference."

Patents are all public.

    *Letter Regarding Registry SG DIDT on TMCH*

"subsistence or exercise" is not common IP legal language.  I assume
"subsidence" would mean that IP rights reside in certain material whether
or not the rights are being exploited, and "exercise" would be the
exploitation of the rights, but that is just a guess.  Typically, pending
patent applications are secret for 18 months from a first priority date.
Copyrights could be confidential in unpublished material.  Trademarks
rights could never be secret.
