Contrary to the Patent Owner's argument, the Federal Circuit has held that "[i]f accessibility is proved, there is no requirement to show that particular members of the public actually received the information." Constant v. Advanced Micro-Devices, Inc., 848 F.2d 1560, 1569 (Fed. Cir. 1988). In applying this rule, the Federal Circuit held that, in a similar situation, a product manual bearing an inscription dating the manual to May 1996, where a declarant stated that it was publicly available to customers, was prior art "[i]n view of the Manual's inscription date, the Smaha Declaration, and evidence of NetStalker advertisements published in 1995." In re Enhanced Sec. Research, LLC 739 F.3d 1347, 1355 (Fed. Cir. 2014).

Constant v. Advanced Micro-Devices, Inc., 848 F.2d 1560, 7 USPQ2d 1057 (Fed. Cir. 1988) 706.02 ,   2128.02 ,   2129 ,   2145 ,   2152.03
