We do not find the Examiner's interpretation of the claim language to be reasonable.  "[A]s a general rule the claim is not limited to performance of the steps in the order recited, unless the claim explicitly or implicitly requires a specific order."  Baldwin Graphic Sys. Inc. v. Siebert, Inc., 512 F. 3d 1338, 1345 (Fed. Cir. 2008) (citing Interactive Gift Express, Inc. v. Compuserve Inc., 256 F.3d 1323, 1342-43 (Fed. Cir 2001)); see also In re Gleizer, 356 Fed. Appx. 415, 419 (Fed. Cir. Dec. 15, 2009) (non-precedential) (Even where claims are given their broadest reasonable interpretation before the PTO, method claims may implicitly necessitate the performance of steps in a particular order).
