1631 Ex Parte Leuthardt et al 12460252 - (D) McGRAW 112(2)/103/double patenting INTELLECTUAL VENTURES - ISF HARWARD, SOREN T

A module is an undefined structure that does not inform one of ordinary skill in the art what structure, material, or acts perform the claimed function.  Nor does a "computer processor" provide the requisite structure.  Our reviewing court has made clear that the corresponding structure for performing a specific function is required to be more than a simple general purpose computer or microprocessor.  See, e.g., Aristocrat Techs. Australia Pty Ltd. v. Int'l Game Tech., 521 F.3d 1328, 1333 (Fed. Cir. 2008).  To claim a means for performing a specific computer-implemented function, and then to disclose only a general purpose computer or microprocessor as the structure designed to perform that function, amounts to pure functional claiming.  Id.  The structure corresponding to the means for a computer implemented function must include the algorithm needed to transform the general purpose computer or microprocessor disclosed in the specification.  Id.  Here, Appellants merely refer to modules that may include a computer processor but do not disclose any algorithm for performing the claimed function.
