Furthermore, the artisan is not compelled to blindly follow the teaching of one prior art reference over the other without the exercise of independent judgment (See Lear Siegler, Inc. v. Aeroquip Corp., 733 F.2d 881, 889 (Fed. Cir. 1984)).

TWI Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 2014-1391, 2014 WL 6782649, at *6–*7 (Fed. Cir., Dec. 3, 2014) (inherency is limited when applied to obviousness and is present only when the limitation at issue is the “natural result” of the combination of prior art elements; quoting In re Oelrich, 666 F.2d 578, 581 (CCPA 1981))

Swinehart, In re, 439 F.2d 210, 169 USPQ 226 (CCPA 1971) 2114 2161.01 2173.01 2173.05(g) 2183
