1741 Ex Parte Day et al 11605642 - (D) ABRAHAM 103 CORNING INCORPORATED KEMMERLE III, RUSSELL J

“A prima facie case of obviousness can be rebutted if the applicant . . . can show ‘that the art in any material respect taught away’ from the claimed invention.” In re Haruna, 249 F.3d 1327, 1335 (Fed. Cir. 2001) (citing In re Geisler, 116 F.3d 1465, 1469 (Fed. Cir. 1997)). Furthermore,

[a] reference may be said to teach away when a person of ordinary skill, upon reading the reference, would be discouraged from following the path set out in the reference, or would be led in a direction divergent from the path that was taken by the applicant. The degree of teaching away will of course depend on the particular facts . . . .

In re Gurley, 27 F.3d 551, 553 (Fed. Cir. 1994).
