3655 Ex Parte Asai et al 11262917 - (D) KAUFFMAN 103 WESTERMAN, HATTORI, DANIELS & ADRIAN, LLP KNIGHT, DEREK DOUGLAS

The Examiner concluded that it would have been obvious to modify Kitaori so that the plurality of segment pieces are setback as called for in claim 1,

since it has been held that where the general conditions of a claim (which are segment pieces being setback from the outer peripheral edges of the core plate) are disclosed in the prior art, discovering the optimum or workable ranges involves only routine skill in the art.

Ans. 4-6 (citing In re Aller, 220 F.2d 454 (CCPA 1955)).

The Examiner misapplies the principle set forth in Aller. There, the Court counseled that if one skilled in the art can discover the optimum or workable ranges by routine experimentation, where the general conditions of a claim are disclosed in the prior art, the differences between the claimed invention and the prior art may not be patentable differences. Aller, 220 F.2d at 827. Rather than showing that only routine experimentation would be involved in an optimization exercise directed to the setback of the plurality of segment pieces, the Examiner presumed that because the general conditions of the claim were met, discovery would have involved only routine skill.

Aller, In re, 220 F.2d 454, 105 USPQ 233 (CCPA 1955) 2144.05
