All Things Pros covers a variety of patent prosecution topics. Here you will find prosecution strategies for handling 102, 103, 101 and 112 rejections, often discussed in the context of BPAI decisions. You`ll also find procedural topics from the MPEP such as after-final, RCE, and restriction practice. You`ll also find claim construction and infrin

gement topics, in the context of BPAI, district court, or Federal Circuit decisions. Takeaway: In an anticipation rejection of a claim to an electrical circuit, the Examiner relied on a circuit diagram and asserted it to be equivalent to the diagram used in the reference. The Applicant appealed and argued that the Examiner`s reliance on this figure was improper. The Board affirmed the anticipation rejection after finding that the Examiner`s diagram was equivalent and disclosed the claim limitation at issue. ( Ex parte Cogdill, PTAB 2010. ) In response, the Applicant amended to further describe the two claimed impedance element as "series" and "parallel" and also added the "same side" limitation. The Applicant argued that Fig. 3 of Johnson did not disclose the parallel impedance as claimed. The Examiner maintained the rejection in a Final Office Action, and provided a "Fig. 3b" (shown below) which the Examiner described as an "equivalent circuit. " According to the Examiner, "it is irrelevant how these schematics are drawn as long as the connections/nodes are the same, since it is merely a matter of drawing choice. " The Examiner then explained the rejection as follows: The parallel termination impedance (326) is between the series dampening impedance and the branch point (star node) and the parallel termination impedance (326 - where 326 is parallel in reference to Vtt and star node) is on the same side (below memory...
