1773 Ex Parte Eisenhardt et al 12638347 - (D) GARRIS 112(2)/103 103 KRIEG DEVAULT/ROCHE ALEXANDER, LYLE

It appears that Appellants consider claim 18 to be a dependent claim which depends from claim 1 (id.). This is not correct.

Claim 18 is directed to "[a] data storage unit for a system according to claim 1" wherein the recitation "for a system according to claim 1" merely describes the intended use of the claimed data storage unit. This intended use recitation does not cause claim 18 to be a dependent claim which includes all the claim 1 limitations and further limits claim 1 in accordance with 37 C.F.R. § 1.75(c). See also Ex parte Gillis, No. 2011-007483, 2013 WL 860588 at *2-*4 (PTAB March 4, 2013) ("[C]laims that refer to other claims are not necessarily dependent claims. . . . [T] the statute does not say that a dependent claim is one that contains a reference to another claim, merely that a dependent claim shall have a reference to another claim."). The only subject matter defined and required by claim 18 is the data storage unit by itself which on this record is indisputably taught by each of the applied references.
