Responding to this argument, the Examiner cites In re Seid for the proposition that "the particular artwork and shape conforming to the artwork was deemed to be purely ornamental, since matters relating to ornamentation only, which have no mechanical function, cannot be relied upon to patentably distinguish the claimed invention from the prior art." Ans. 2; see In re Seid, 161 F.2d 229, 231 (CCPA 1947).

The Examiner's citation is not on point. In Seid, the allegedly novel features where shown in the prior art. In re Seid, 161 F.2d at 231 ("[t]hat concept, however, is old in the patent to Kirchner et al., wherein the cardboard figure representing the upper half of the human body conceals the bottle neck and is supported thereon, while the body of the bottle represents the lower half of the human display figure"). Here, the Examiner provides no example of any item having "a plurality of evenly-spaced rounded bumps protruding from said one edge" as evidence that the claimed shape was known in the art. Appeal Br. 28.

Seid, In re, 161 F.2d 229, 73 USPQ 431 (CCPA 1947) 2112.01 2144.04
