The Examiner has properly concluded that Appellant errs in arguing that an applicant's own patented work is only a statutory bar if a rejection is based on 35 U.S.C. §102(b) and not on 35 U.S.C. § 103. It is well settled that prior art available under 35 U.S.C. § 102 is also available as prior art under 35 U.S.C. § 103 (see MPEP 2141.01, and Ex parte Andresen, 212 USPQ 100, 102 (BPAI 1981). Significantly, Appellant has cited no case law which supports his position.
