2179 Ex parte APPLE, INC. Patent Owner and Appellant Ex Parte 7844915 et al 11/620,717 90012332 - (D) SAADAT 102 MORRISON & FOERSTER LLP FOR THIRD PARTY REQUESTER: BRYAN CAVE LLP YIGDALL, MICHAEL J original BAUTISTA, XIOMARA L

In fact, the term “a two or more finger touch” is mentioned only once in column 6 of Appellant’s Specification whereas in other instances a gesture operation is performed based on “a user input having two or more input points” (emphasis added).

Additionally, we are unpersuaded that the cited supplemental authority, filed April 20, 2015, supports Appellant’s position regarding the conjunctive interpretation of “or” in the disputed claim limitation. We observe that Appellant’s argued position differs from the decision in Vasudevan Software, Inc. v. Microstrategy, Inc., No. 2014-1094 (Fed. Cir. Apr. 3, 2015) because, unlike Vasudevan, Appellant has not pointed to any part of the prosecution history to show that Appellant was relying on the definition based on a conjunctive interpretation of “or.”

Vasudevan - "The conjunctive interpretation is also consistent with proper grammar, where the phrase "`not A, B, or C' means `not A, not B, and not C.'" A. Scalia &. B. Garner, Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts 119 (2012) (citing DeMorgan's theorem)."
