As such, the Specification does not set forth a definition of “a copy-protection template” to limit the claim term. See CCS Fitness, Inc. v. Brunswick Corp., 288 F.3d 1359, 1366 (Fed. Cir. 2002) (Claim terms are properly construed to include limitations not otherwise inherent in the term when the Specification “clearly set[s] forth a definition of the disputed claim term.”). The exemplary embodiment is, however, an informative example of how to practice their invention. Cf. Phillips v. AWH Corp., 415 F.3d 1303, 1323 (Fed. Cir. 2005) (explaining that examples in a specification may be used to teach an ordinarily skilled artisan how to practice the invention, rather than intending to limit the claims to the embodiments disclosed in the specification).

Phillips v. AWH Corp., 415 F.3d 1303, 75 USPQ2d 1321 (Fed. Cir. 2005) 2111, 2111.01, 2143.01, 2258

See also, In re McGuire, 416 F.2d 1322, 1327-28 (CCPA 1969) (“Appellants argue the century-old status of the references but this argument does not impress us, absent some showing that the art tried and failed to solve some problem notwithstanding its presumed knowledge of the references. For aught that appears, as soon as the need for an inside tubing cutter was perceived it was produced out of the accumulated skill of the art.”).
