2163 Ex Parte Gutjahr et al 12018514 - (D) CURCURI concurring JEFFERY 102 HEWLETT-PACKARD COMPANY NGUYEN, KIM T

And to the extent that independent claim 10 improperly recites active method steps as part of an apparatus (i.e., "a first computer that provides ...." "a second computer  ... retrieves," " the second computer ... retrieves," "the second computer generates ...") to render the claim indefinite under 112(b) is likewise a question that the Examiner should consider following this opinion.  See In re Katz Interactive Call Proc. Pat. Litig., 639 F.3d 1303, 1318 (Fed. Cir. 2011)  (citing IPXL Holdings, L.L.C. v. Amazon.con, Inc. 430 F.3d 1377, 1384 (Fed. Cir. 2005)); see also Rembrandt Data Technologies, LP v. AOL, LLC, 641 F.3d 1331, 1339 (Fed. Cir 2011) (data transmitting device held indefinite for reciting transmitting method step).
