Thus, the term “elastic” may be interpreted more broadly than returning to an original shape, and also be interpreted as an adjective that modifies the socket material to incorporate characteristics such as being springy or capable of ready change as in the alternative dictionary definitions. See In re Morris, 127 F.3d 1048, 1054-56 (Fed. Cir. 1997) (“Absent an express definition in their specification, the fact that appellants can point to definitions or usages that conform to their interpretation does not make the PTO’s definition unreasonable when the PTO can point to other sources that support its interpretation.”)

Morris, In re, 127 F.3d 1048, 44 USPQ2d 1023 (Fed. Cir. 1997) 904.01 2111 2111.01 2163 2173.05(a) 2181

“The mere age of the references is not persuasive of the unobviousness of the combination of their teachings, absent evidence that, notwithstanding knowledge of the references, the art tried and failed to solve the problem.” In re Wright, 569 F.2d 1124, 1127 (CCPA 1977) (100 year old patent was properly relied upon in a rejection based on a combination of references.).
