1711 Ex Parte Jerg et al 10578386 - (D) METZ 103 BSH HOME APPLIANCES CORPORATION RIGGLEMAN, JASON PAUL

1714 Ex Parte Rosenbauer et al 11793937 - (D) TIMM 102/103 37 CFR 41.50(b) 103 BSH HOME APPLIANCES CORPORATION WHATLEY, KATELYN B

It is a matter of ordinary skill to remove a feature that is not being used.  As stated in In re Larson, 340 F. 2d 965 (CCPA 1965) "If this additional feature is not desired, it would seem a matter of obvious choice to eliminate it and the function it serves."

Larson, In re, 340 F.2d 965, 144 USPQ 347 (CCPA 1965) 2144.04

See In re NTP, INC., 654 F.3d 1279, 1302 (Fed. Cir. 2011) (“It is axiomatic that for anticipation, each and every claim limitation must be explicitly or inherently disclosed in the prior art.” (citations omitted)); cf. In re Jasinski, 2013 WL 563285 at *3 (Fed. Cir. 2013) (non-precedential) (“The government, however, has failed to establish anticipation. The Adams reference does not disclose verifying the accuracy of logical-to-physical mapping software. Adams merely discloses a BIST routine for detecting errors within a memory device by comparing memory contents with a predetermined bit pattern. The fact that it states that the output of the mapping can be used in additional ‘failure analysis’ is not the same thing as disclosing those additional types of failure analysis.”). Accordingly, we do not sustain the rejections of claims 10-15 and 17-19 under 35 U.S.C. §102(b).
