2166 Ex Parte Brown et al 11454819 - (D) KIM 103 37 C.F.R. § 41.50(b) 102 TUTUNJIAN & BITETTO, P.C. AHLUWALIA, NAVNEET K

Specifically, Appellants assert that Marshall is non-analogous art. App. Br. 12, 15-16. We agree. Generally, the claimed invention is directed to video camera surveillance programs, while Marshall is directed to incentive reward programs. Accordingly, Marshall and the claimed invention are not in the same field of endeavor, and, facially, Marshall and the claimed invention also do not appear to be directed to the same problem. In re Bigio, 381 F.3d 1320, 1325-1326 (Fed. Cir. 2004) (Art is analogous when it is: (1) from the same field of endeavor as the claimed invention; or (2) reasonably pertinent to the particular problem faced by the inventor, if the art is not from the same field of endeavor). Although not set forth in the Examiner’s Answer, Appellants assert that the Examiner at one point indicated that the field of study was “‘capturing, detecting, and analyzing the information.’” App. Br. 15. We agree with Appellants that this purported “‘field’” is unreasonably broad. Id.; c.f. In re Klein, 647 F.3d 1343 (Fed. Cir. 2011).
