However, it has been established that the claim need not use the same words as the specification, but rather it is enough that one of ordinary skill in the art would recognize that the inventor invented what is claimed. Union Oil Co. of Cal. v. Atlantic Richfield Co., 208 F.3d 989, 997 (Fed. Cir. 2000). We, therefore, conclude Appellants’ Specification conveys with reasonable clarity to those skilled in the art that, as of the filing date sought, Appellants were in possession of the invention as now claimed. Vas-Cath, Inc. v. Mahurkar, 935 F.2d 1555, 1563-64 (Fed. Cir. 1991).

The difference between using ROM to store a fixed memory of graphics to be displayed by the gaming machine versus downloading the graphics to be displayed on the gaming machine from a remote location (e.g., server) does not affect the overall principle of operation of Ozaki’s gaming machine. See In re Umbarger, 407 F.2d 425, 430-31 (CCPA 1969) (finding In re Ratti, 270 F.2d 810, 813 (CCPA 1959) inapplicable where the modified apparatus will operate “on the same principles as before.”).
