For Rittal Catalogue 31 to “qualify as a printed publication within the meaning of § 102, [it] ‘must have been sufficiently accessible to the public interested in the art.’” In re Lister, 58[2]3 F.3d 1307, 1311 (Fed. Cir. 2009) (quoting In re Cronyn, 890 F.2d 1158, 1160 (Fed. Cir. 1989)). “Whether a reference is publicly accessible is determined on a case-by-case basis based on the ‘facts and circumstances surrounding the reference’s disclosure to members of the public.’” Id. (quoting In re Klopfenstein, 380 F.3d 1345, 1350 (Fed. Cir. 2004)). A reference is considered publicly accessible if “it ‘has been disseminated or otherwise made available to the extent that persons interested and ordinarily skilled in the subject matter or art, exercising reasonable diligence, can locate it.’” Cordis Corp. v. Boston Scientific Corp., 561 F.3d 1319, 1333 (Fed. Cir. 2009) (quoting In re Wyer, 655 F.2d 221, 226 (CCPA 1981)). The PTO carries the initial burden of demonstrating public accessibility. See In re Hall, 781 F.2d 897, 899 (Fed. Cir. 1986) (“The proponent of the publication bar must show that prior to the critical date the reference was sufficiently accessible . . . .”); In re Lister, 583 F.3d at 1317 (rejecting the position that the burden shifted from the PTO to the applicant to show inaccessibility where there was a lack of substantial evidence that the reference was publicly accessible as of the critical date).
