“[W]hen the PTO shows sound basis for believing that the products of the applicant and the prior art are the same, the applicant has the burden of showing that they are not.” In re Spada, 911 F.2d 705, 708 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (citing In re King, 801 F.2d 1324, 1327 (Fed. Cir. 1986) and In re Ludtke, 441 F.2d 660, 664 (CCPA 1971)). In this case, however, the Examiner has not shown a sound basis to shift the burden to Appellants.

We first note that Appellant employs the Markush group format in claim 5 by reciting “selecting an operation from the group consisting of accessing data . . . , posting data . . . , updating data . . . , deleting data . . . , and combinations thereof.” See MPEP § 2173.05(h)(I). Accordingly, Xu discloses the “selecting” step if Xu discloses selecting one of the recited operations in the group. See Fresenius USA, Inc. v. Baxter Int’l, Inc., 582 F.3d 1288, 1298 (2009) (“[T]he entire element is disclosed by the prior art if one alternative in the Markush group is in the prior art.”) (citing Schering Corp. v. Geneva Pharms., Inc., 339 F.3d 1373, 1380 (Fed. Cir. 2003)).
