HUANG, EVELYN MEI original WEIER, ANTHONY J

(citing CFMT, Inc. v. Yieldup Int’l Corp, 349 F.3d 1333, 1338 (Fed. Cir. 2003) (“Enablement does not require an inventor to meet lofty standards for success in the commercial marketplace.”)).

CFMT, Inc. v. Yieldup Int ’l Corp., 349 F.3d 1333, 68 USPQ2d 1940 (Fed. Cir. 2003) 2164
...

In this regard, we emphasize the second rationale to obviousness-type double patenting, which is “to prevent multiple infringement suits by different assignees asserting essentially the same patented invention.” In re Hubbel, --- F.3d----, 2013 WL 828475,*3 (Fed. Cir. March 7, 2013) (citing In re Van Ornum, 686 F.2d 937, 943-4 (CCPA 1982)).

DUTTON, JR. NOT, DEFINED; PATTERSON, MARIE D

The requirement that a best mode violation requires intentional concealment was set forth in In re Gay, 309 F.2d 769, 772 (CCPA 1962) where this court’s predecessor explained, “Manifestly, the sole purpose of [the best mode requirement] is to restrain inventors from applying for patents while at the same time concealing from the public preferred embodiments of their inventions which they have in fact conceived.”

Gay, In re, 309 F.2d 769, 135 USPQ 311 (CCPA 1962) 608.01(h), 2161.01, 2165.01
