See Medichem, S.A. v. Rolabo, S.L., 437 F.3d 1157, 1165 (Fed. Cir. 2006) (“[A] given course of action often has simultaneous advantages and disadvantages, and this does not necessarily obviate motivation to combine.”).

The plain meaning of “coupled” encompasses both direct and indirect coupling. See MEMS Tech. Berhad v. Int’l Trade Comm’n, 447 Fed. Appx. 142, 151-53 (Fed. Cir. 2011) (unpublished) (declining to limit “electrically coupled” to direct coupling);4 see also US Patent Application Publication 2002/0116139, at ¶ 0038 (“Herein, the phrase ‘coupled with’ is defined to mean directly connected to or indirectly connected with through one or more intermediate components.”)

4 Cf. Ex parte Palomar, No. 2009-011698, 2011 WL 3666727, at *2 (BPAI 2011) (non-precedential) (construing a claim reciting “directly coupled” as excluding indirect coupling).

See Norgren v. Int’l Trade Comm’n, 699 F.3d 1317, 1323 (Fed. Cir. 2012) (claim drawn to a “four-sided, generally rectangular clamp” requires that “the clamp as a whole, and not merely portions of it, must be four-sided and generally rectangular”).
