The question of whether a prior art reference “teaches away” from the claimed subject matter is irrelevant to an anticipation analysis. See Celeritas Technologies Ltd. v. Rockwell Int’l Corp., 150 F.3d 1354, 1361 (Fed. Cir. 1998) (“A reference is no less anticipatory if, after disclosing the invention, the reference then disparages it. Thus, the question whether a reference ‘teaches away’ from the invention is inapplicable to an anticipation analysis.”) (Citations omitted).

1633 Ex Parte Wallach et al 10/761,370 WALSH 103(a) Browdy and Neimark, PLLC EXAMINER POPA, ILEANA

“[Appellants] are, in effect, arguing that a structure suggested by the prior art, and, hence, potentially in the possession of the public, is patentable to them because it also possesses an Inherent, but hitherto unknown, function which they claim to have discovered. This is not the law. A patent on such a structure would remove from the public that which is in the public domain by virtue of its inclusion in, or obviousness from, the prior art.” In re Wiseman, 596 F.2d 1019, 1023 (CCPA 1979); see also In re Kubin, 561 F.3d 1351, 1357-58 (Fed. Cir. 2009).
