The Examiner’s rejection of claims 3 and 16 constitutes an implied rejection of the broader claims 1, 2, 13, and 15. Ex parte Janakiraman, 2009 WL 1270322 (BPAI 2009) (Informative); see also Ormco Corp. v. Align Tech., Inc., 498 F.3d 1307, 1319 (Fed. Cir. 2007) (When the subject matter of dependent claims is determined to have been obvious, the broader subject matter of the claims from which they depend must also be determined to have been obvious.); In re Muchmore, 433 F.2d 824, 824–25 (CCPA 1970) (“Since we agree with the board's conclusion of obviousness as to these narrow claims, the broader claims must likewise be obvious.”). Therefore, we sustain the rejection of claims 3, 5, 16, and 17

While de Mint is silent as to from where these instructions are executed (server side or user computer side), we find that the mere existence of differences between the prior art and the claim does not establish nonobviousness. Dann v. Johnston, 425 U.S. 219, 230 (1976). The issue is “whether the difference between the prior art and the subject matter in question ‘is a differen[ce] sufficient to render the claimed subject matter unobvious to one skilled in the applicable art.’” Dann, 425 U.S. at 228 (citation omitted) (finding system for automatic record keeping of bank checks and deposits obvious in view of nature of extensive use of data processing systems in banking industry and “closely analogous” patent for an automatic data processing system used in a large business organization for keeping and updating system transaction files for each department of the organization).

Dann v. Johnston, 425 U.S. 219, 189 USPQ 257 (1976) 716.01(a) 2141 2141.03
