The informational content of non–functional descriptive material is not entitled to weight in the patentability analysis. See In re Lowry, 32 F.3d 1579, 1583 (Fed. Cir. 1994) (“Lowry does not claim merely the information content of a memory. . . . Nor does he seek to patent the content of information resident in a database.”).

Thus, although we consider all claim limitations when determining patentability, Appellants’ non-functional descriptive designations are not entitled to weight in the analysis. Cf. In re Lowry, 32 F.3d 1579, 1584 (Fed. Cir. 1994) (“Lowry’s data structures are physical entities that provide increased efficiency in computer operation. They are not analogous to printed matter.”)
