Appellant’s reliance on this purported prosecution disclaimer is unavailing. “[T]he PTO is under no obligation to accept a claim construction proffered as a prosecution history disclaimer, which generally only binds the patent owner.” Tempo Lighting, Inc. v. Tivoli, LLC, 742 F.3d 973, 978 (Fed. Cir. 2014). Rather, the PTO is obligated to give claims their broadest reasonable interpretation not inconsistent with the remainder of the specification. In re Zletz, 893 F.2d 319, 321 (Fed. Cir. 1989) (“[D]uring patent prosecution when claims can be amended, ambiguities should be recognized, scope and breadth of language explored, and clarification imposed.”) (citations omitted); see also In re Bigio, 381 F.3d 1320, 1325 (Fed. Cir. 2004) (counseling “the PTO to avoid the temptation to limit broad claim terms solely on the basis of specification passages”) (citation omitted). The PTO has been counseled that it “should only limit the claim based on . . . prosecution history [that] expressly disclaim[s] the broader definition.” Id. However, this is a caution against careless reliance on prosecution history by the PTO, not a mandate for the liberal reliance on prosecution disclaimer to allow broadly worded claims to be read narrowly without requiring clarifying amendments to the claims or to the Specification.

Zletz, In re, 893 F.2d 319, 13 USPQ2d 1320 (Fed. Cir. 1989) 715 ,   2111 ,   2111.01 ,   2111.03 ,    2138 ,   2171 ,   2173.05(a) ,   2181 ,   2286 ,   2686.04
