Interpreting the claim term “removably” to mean merely being capable of being removed so as to encompass dissolution of the adhesive or disruption of other conventional and generally permanent attachment methods identified in Lee does not give appropriate weight to the meaning of that term and is not consistent with the nature of the attachment method disclosed by Appellants. See Bicon, Inc. v. Straumann Co., 441 F.3d 945, 950 (Fed. Cir. 2006) and In re Danly, 263 F.2d 844, 847 (CCPA 1959) (appellant has used such phrases as “for holding” and “for insulating” throughout the appealed claims with the obvious intention of limiting them to actual performance of the stated functions, as distinguished from mere possibility of such performance). The Examiner’s interpretation essentially renders the terms in the claims superfluous as most attachment methods are capable of being removed if exposed to some outside destructive force. Thus, the Examiner’s interpretation is unreasonably broad as it effectively would expunge the term “removably” from the claim language. See Stumbo v. Eastman Outdoors, Inc., 508 F.3d 1358, 1362 (Fed. Cir. 2007) (denouncing claim constructions that render phrases in claims superfluous).
