“[The Federal Circuit’s] case law holds that the deliberate action of an inventor or attorney during prosecution generally fails to qualify as a correctable error under § 251.” In re Serenkin, 479 F.3d 1359, 1362 (Fed. Cir. 2007) (holding that Serenkin cannot rely on the reissue statute, in light of a belated decision that he should have retained the original filing date, in order to undo the consequences of his attorney’s deliberate choice of selecting the drawings over the original international filing date in response to the PCT examiner’s requirement).

In a recent decision, the Federal Circuit held that 35 U.S.C. § 251 cannot be used to withdraw a terminal disclaimer from an issued patent. In re Yamazaki, 702 F.3d 1327, 1333 (Fed. Cir. 2012). In Yamazaki, the Patentee attempted to extend the term of the original patent by removing the terminal disclaimer that the Patentee inadvertently failed to have withdrawn prior to issuance of the patent. Id. The court in Yamazaki held that the “term of the original patent” is set at the time of issuance so that the Office is not permitted under 35 U.S.C. § 251 to reissue a patent for a longer term. Id.
