In arguing there is a conflict, Appellant contends that the concept of conflicts between teachings is different from the concept of teaching away. Appeal Br. 6, citing MPEP § 2143.01. But MPEP § 2143.01 reiterates that: "The test for obviousness is what the combined teachings of the references would have suggested to one of ordinary skill in the art, and all teachings in the prior art must be considered to the extent that they are in analogous arts." see In re Young, 927 F.2d 588, 591 (Fed. Cir. 1991); In re Keller, 642 F.2d 413, 425 (CCPA 1981). That is the test for all cases of obviousness. One must always weigh the evidence as a whole including any evidence of a teaching away or a conflict. See In re Young at 591.

In the case of Young, there was another reference to Knudsen discrediting the teaching of one of the references relied upon by the examiner, i.e., Carlisle. In Young, Knudsen described tests evaluating the technique of Carlisle and opined that Carlisle's technique would not yield an improvement. Id. at 591. But Appellant in our case does not point to any particular teaching within any of the prior art references with such a discrediting teaching. Silence does not discredit.

Young, In re, 927 F.2d 588, 18 USPQ2d 1089 (Fed. Cir. 1991) 2143.01

Keller, In re, 642 F.2d 413, 208 USPQ 871 (CCPA 1981) 707.07(f) 2145
