3725 Ex Parte Brößke et al 12095566 - (D) HILL 102/103 37 C.F.R. § 41.50(b) 112(1) PROSKAUER ROSE LLP EKIERT, TERESA M

Although we appreciate the Examiner’s position that the term “substantially” is a word that is used as a modifier to imply “approximately” rather than “precisely,” nonetheless, we agree with Appellants that a blank bent at a 90 degree angle does not constitute a “substantially” flat blank. See App. Br. 5; see also Playtex Prods., Inc. v. Proctor and Gamble Co., 400 F.3d 901, 907 (Fed. Cir. 2005). Thus, Roper’s bent blank that is introduced between coreless halves 31, 32 of a die is simply not “substantially flat” as recited in claim 1.

3746 Ex Parte Frank et al 11256717 - (D) SMEGAL 103 Kelly, Holt & Christenson, P.L.L.C. COMLEY, ALEXANDER BRYANT

When a claim requires two separate elements, using one element construed as performing two separate functions will not suffice to meet the terms of the claim. See In re Robertson, 169 F.3d 743 (Fed. Cir.
1999).
