1715 Ex Parte Badyal et al 10509295 - (D) PER CURIAM 103 WINSTEAD P.C. LIGHTFOOT, ELENA TSOY

Appellants argue that the Examiner’s reliance upon Levy in an anticipation rejection is improper. Appeal Br. 6. However, under certain circumstances, an anticipation rejection over multiple references has been held to be proper, for example, to show that a characteristic not disclosed in the reference is inherent, as in the instant case. See Telemac Cellular Corp. v. Topp Telecom, Inc., 247 F.3d 1316, 1328, 58 USPQ2d 1545, 1553 (Fed. Cir. 2001)(“[R]ecourse to extrinsic evidence is proper to determine whether a feature, while not explicitly discussed, is necessarily present in a reference.”).1

1 While we cite to Telemac Cellular Corp., we note that the Court in Schering Corp. v. Geneva Pharm., 339 F.3d 1373, 1377 (Fed. Cir. 2003), rejected the contention that inherent anticipation requires recognition in the prior art. Thus, recognition by a person of ordinary skill in the art before the critical date of a patent is not required to show anticipation by inherency.

Schering Corp. v. Geneva Pharm. Inc., 339 F.3d 1373, 67 USPQ2d 1664 (Fed. Cir. 2003) 2112 2152.02(b)
