The Examiner cites to the decision in Ex parte Simpson, 218 USPQ 1020 (Bd. App. 1982), for the proposition that “[w]here a trademark or trade name is used in a claim as a limitation to identify or describe a particular material or product, the claim does not comply with the requirements of 35 U.S.C. 112, second paragraph.” (Id.)

Appellants contend the use of Java in the claims does not render the claims indefinite per se; instead “[a] basic question to be resolved is whether the use of ‘Java’ in the context of these claims and this application [is] indefinite, such that a person of ordinary skill in the art could not discern the metes and bounds of the claimed subject matter.” ...

We agree with Appellants. This case is closely analogous to Ex Parte O’Farrell, Appeal No. 2011-011075, 2014 WL 2112325, at *4 (PTAB May 19, 2014) (non-precedential). The O’Farrell panel held that the recitation of the trademark “Java” was not indefinite because “‘Java’ is a well-known and widely-used term identifying a particular programming language.” Id
