(Ans. 13 (citing Boston Scientific Scimed v. Cordis, 554 F.3d 982, 991 (Fed. Cir. 2009)). We do not find the citation of that case, however, to be sufficient to support a conclusion of obviousness.

That is, while the Federal Circuit stated in Boston Scientific Scimed that “[c]ombining two embodiments disclosed adjacent to each other in a prior art patent does not require a leap of inventiveness,” Boston Scientific Scimed, 554 F.3d at 991, the Examiner has not explained how the facts in that case would lead to the same conclusion in the instant appeal.

Moreover, to the extent that the Examiner relies on teachings selectively drawn from different embodiments of Dougherty to disclose the disputed limitations of claim 9, this is improper in the context of an anticipation rejection. Application of Arkley, 455 F.2d 586, 587-88 (CCPA 1972). In Arkley, the court found that rejections under 35 U.S.C. § 103 are proper where the subject matter claimed “is not identically disclosed or described” (emphasis ours) in “the prior art,” indicating that rejections under 35 U.S.C. § 102 are proper only when the claimed subject matter is identically disclosed or described in “the prior art.” Thus, for the instant rejection under 35 U.S.C. § 102(e) to have been proper, the [cited] reference must clearly and unequivocally disclose the claimed [system] or direct those skilled in the art to the [system] without any need for picking, choosing, and combining various disclosures not directly related to each other by the teachings of the cited reference. Such picking and choosing may be entirely proper in the making of a 103, obviousness rejection, where the applicant must be afforded an opportunity to rebut with objective evidence any inference of obviousness which may arise from the similarity of the subject matter which he claims to the prior art, but it has no place in the making of a 102, anticipation rejection. Id.
