To decide whether a patentee surrendered certain subject matter, we must determine "whether an objective observer viewing the prosecution history would conclude that the purpose of the patentee's amendment or argument" concerning a particular claim was for reasons of patentability, that is, "to overcome prior art and secure the patent." Kim v. ConAgra Foods, Inc., 465 F.3d 1312, 1323 (Fed. Cir.2006).

Our reviewing court, however, has held that “[i]n reexamination, ‘claims . . . are to be given their broadest reasonable interpretation consistent with the specification, and . . . claim language should be read in light of the specification as it would be interpreted by one of ordinary skill in the art.’” In re NTP, Inc., 654 F.3d 1268, 1274 (Fed. Cir. 2011), quoting In re American Academy of Science Tech Center, 367 F.3d 1359, 1364 (Fed. Cir. 2004); see also In re Baxter Intern., Inc., 678 F.3d 1357, 1365 (Fed. Cir. 2012) (holding that because District Court proceedings and reexamination proceedings in the PTO apply different burdens of proof and rely on different records, the PTO did not err by failing to provide a detailed explanation as to why the PTO came to a different determination than did the court system). We will follow the Federal Circuit’s holding.
