2186 Ex Parte Hyatt 11608373 - (D) ROBERTSON 112(2)/103 RENNER, OTTO, BOISSELLE & SKLAR, LLP BIRKHIMER, CHRISTOPHER D

Here, Appellant’s recitation of “that has been partially transferred” refers to a completed result of a prior step (i.e., “transferring only a part of the incoming media content to the electronic device”), such that there is a temporal limitation implicit from a plain reading of the claim language. See e.g. E-Pass Technologies, Inc. v. 3Com Corp, 473 F.3d 1213, 1222 (Fed. Cir. 2007) (holding that because the language of most of the steps of its method claim refer to the completed results of the prior step (e.g., “transferring a data set ...; storing said transferred data set”), Appellant must show that all of those steps were performed in order). The Examiner has not directed us to any language in the Specification that would suggest otherwise.

Appellants rely on a definition from Wikipedia. Notably, Wikipedia disclaims the validity of its website‟s content and is unreliable. See Techradium, Inc. v. Blackboard Connect Inc., 2009 WL 1152985, *4 n.5 (E.D. Tex. 2009).
