Although these limitations are set forth in terms of function or use in claim I (Ans. 5), they "tell[] us something about the structural requirements of the [device]." See K-2 Corp. v. Salomon S.A., 191 F.3d 1356, 1363 (Fed. Cir. 1999); accord Rowe v. Dror, 112 F. 3d 473, 479-80 (Fed. Cir. 1997). Clearly, the use of manipulative language does not similarly demonstrate breadth in method claims 17 and 22, as it is well-settled that the novelty of the device used is not dispositive as to the patentability of method claims. See, e.g., Catalina Marketing Int'l. v. Coolsavings.com, 289 F. 3d 801, 809-810 (Fed. Cir. 2002).
