We have considered the Declaration, but do not find it persuasive of establishing patentability of the appealed subject matter. Although factual evidence is preferable to opinion testimony, such testimony is entitled to consideration and some weight so long as the opinion is not on the ultimate legal conclusion at issue. While an opinion as to a legal conclusion is not entitled to any weight, the underlying basis for the opinion may be persuasive. In re Chilowsky, 306 F.2d 908, 916 (CCPA 1962) (expert opinion that an application meets the requirements of 35 U.S.C. § 112 is not entitled to any weight; however, facts supporting a basis for deciding that the specification complies with 35 U.S.C. § 112 are entitled to some weight); In re Lindell, 385 F.2d 453, 456 (CCPA 1967). On this record, Declarant has not directed us to persuasive evidence sufficient to establish that a person of ordinary skill in the art would not have recognized the suitability of using Murakami’s process for graphitizing a SAM as exemplified in Eck.
