“In cases involving overlapping ranges . . . even a slight overlap in range establishes a prima facie case of obviousness.” In re Peterson, 315 F.3d 1325, 1329 (Fed. Cir. 2003). Moreover,

Selecting a narrow range from within a somewhat broader range disclosed in a prior art reference is no less obvious than identifying a range that simply overlaps a disclosed range. In fact, when . . . the claimed ranges are completely encompassed by the prior art, the conclusion is even more compelling than in cases of mere overlap. . . . [A] prior art reference that discloses a range encompassing a somewhat narrower claimed range is sufficient to establish a prima facie case of obviousness.

(Id. at 1329-1330.)

The Examiner relies on In re Rose, 220 F.2d 459 (CCPA 1955) for the proposition that “[a] change in size is generally recognized as being within the level of ordinary skill in the art.” Ans. 8.

The Examiner’s reliance on In re Rose is misplaced... The court in Rose did not address a modification in which the size of a particular component of the article is modified without a respective size change in the remaining components...

Rose, In re, 220 F.2d 459, 105 USPQ 237 (CCPA 1955) 2144.04
