Our reviewing court guides, "[A]n application is not entitled to a patent if another's patent discloses the same invention, which was carried forward from an earlier U.S. provisional application or U.S. non-provisional application."  In re Giacomini, 612 F.3d 1380, 1383 (Fed. Cir. 2010). "An important limitation is that the provisional application must provide provisional written description support for the claimed invention."  Id. (emphasis added). ...

However, our reviewing court clarifies that "it is 'not a question of whether one skilled in the art might be able to construct the patentee's device from the teachings of the disclosure....  Rather, it is a question whether the application necessarily discloses that particular device,' ... A description which renders obvious the invention for which an earlier filing date is sought is not sufficient." Lockwood v. American Airlines, Inc., 107 F.3d 1565, 1572 (Fd. Cir. 1997) (quoting Jepson v. Coleman, 314 F.2d 533, 536 (CCPA 1963))(emphasis added). ...

Because of the Examiner's repeated reliance on the word "implied" in the Final Office Action, and based upon our review of the record, we are persuaded the Liu application, at best, may render obvious some portions of the necessary support.  However, under 112, first paragraph (written description), "[a] description which renders obvious the invention for which an earlier filing date is sought is not sufficient." Lockwood, 107 F.3d at 1572. (Emphasis added).

Lockwood v. American Airlines, Inc., 107 F.3d 1505, 41 USPQ2d 1961 (Fed. Cir. 1997) 2133.03(a) 2163 2163.02
