REEXAMINATION

AFFIRMED
Tech Center 2800 Semiconductors, Electrical and Optical Systems and Components
2857 INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS MACHINES CORPORATION Requester v. AUBURN UNIVERSITY Patent Owner Ex Parte 7,194,366 et al 10/274,439 95001574 - (D) KOHUT 112(1) 102/103 FISH & RICHARDSON P.C. (DC) Third Party Requester: International Business Machines Corporation Jones Day DEB, ANJAN K original TSAI, CAROL S W

We do not find Requester’s expert opinion persuasive. Neither the Examiner nor the Board is bound by statements of an expert in an affidavit, but rather, such evidence should be evaluated and considered for its
probative value, like all other evidence in the record. See Velander v. Garner, 348 F.3d 1359, 1371 (Fed. Cir. 2003) ("It is within the discretion of the trier of fact to give each item of evidence such weight as it feels
appropriate . . . In giving more weight to prior publications than to subsequent conclusory statements by experts, the Board acted well within that discretion"); citing Ashland Oil, Inc. v. Delta Resins & Refractories, Inc., 776 F.2d 281, 294 (Fed.Cir.1985) ("Lack of factual support for expert opinion going to factual determinations, however, may render the testimony of little probative value in a validity determination."). In addition, statements do not become facts merely because they are set forth in declarations. Rather, the statements must be weighed based on their probative value and other objective evidence submitted in support thereof, if any. See Velander, 348 F.3d at 1371; Ashland Oil, 776 F.2d at 294.

Ashland Oil, Inc. v. Delta Resins & Refractories, Inc., 776 F.2d 281, 227 USPQ 657 (Fed. Cir. 1985)  716.01(b) ,   716.01(c) ,  2145
