It has long been held that an intermediate product or article can anticipate a claimed article even if the intermediate product is merely a stage in the final production of a non-anticipatory article. See In re Mullin, 481 F.2d 1333, 1335-6 (CCPA 1973) (an article that is intended and appreciated is no less anticipatory be it an intermediate structure rather than an end use item) (citing In re Herbert, 461 F.2d 1390, 1394 (CCPA 1972)).

However, as our reviewing court has explained, the fact that Matthews did not prepare a working example of its liposomes does not demonstrate that Matthews’ disclosure is non-enabling:

[F]ailures by those skilled in the art (having possession of the information disclosed by the publication) are strong evidence that the disclosure of the publication was nonenabling. By contrast, the fact that the author of a publication did not attempt to make his disclosed invention does not indicate one way or the other whether the publication would have been enabling.

“Negative claim limitations are adequately supported when the specification describes a reason to exclude the relevant limitation.” Santarus, Inc. v. Par Pharmaceutical Inc., 694 F.3d 1344 (Fed Cir. 2012). An express intent to confer on the claim language the novel meaning imparted by the negative limitation is required, such as an express disclaimer or independent lexicography in the written description that provides support for the negative limitation. Omega Engineering, Inc, v. Raytek Corp., 334 F.3d 1314, 1323 (Fed. Cir. 2003) (citations omitted).

As such, the Specification does not set forth a definition of “a copy-protection template” to limit the claim term. See CCS Fitness, Inc. v. Brunswick Corp., 288 F.3d 1359, 1366 (Fed. Cir. 2002) (Claim terms are properly construed to include limitations not otherwise inherent in the term when the Specification “clearly set[s] forth a definition of the disputed claim term.”). The exemplary embodiment is, however, an informative example of how to practice their invention. Cf. Phillips v. AWH Corp., 415 F.3d 1303, 1323 (Fed. Cir. 2005) (explaining that examples in a specification may be used to teach an ordinarily skilled artisan how to practice the invention, rather than intending to limit the claims to the embodiments disclosed in the specification).

For aught that appears, as soon as the need for an inside tubing cutter was perceived it was produced out of the accumulated skill of the art.”).
