Secondary considerations, including satisfaction of a long-felt need and commercial success can have a significant impact on an obviousness analysis. See, e.g., The Barbed Wire Patent, 143 U.S. 275, 282 (1892); In re Cyclobenzaprine Hydrochloride Extended-Release Capsule Patent Litigation, 676 F.3d 1063, 1075-1080 (Fed. Cir. 2012) (long-felt need and commercial success should be considered before ultimate decision made on obviousness); In re Tiffin, 443 F.2d 394 (CCPA 1971), modified on reh’g, 448 F.2d 791 (CCPA 1971); Ex parte Artsana USA, Inc., 2014 WL 4090808 (PTAB Aug. 18, 2014) (finding commercial success to be entitled to considerable weight); Murata Mfg. Co., Ltd. v. Synqor, Inc., 2014 WL 1397381 *11-14 (PTAB Apr. 10, 2014) (same).
