 In other words, the idea that the claimed transition “seems natural” or is an obvious alternative choice to suddenly increasing the transition (as stated by the Examiner, discussed, supra) is not sufficiently buttressed by evidence or reasoning. See In re Vaidyanathan, 381 Fed.Appx. 985, 994 (Fed. Cir. 2010) (non-precedential) (“KSR did not free the PTO’s examination process from explaining its reasoning. In making an obviousness rejection, the examiner should not rely on conclusory statements that a particular feature of the invention would have been obvious or was well known. Instead, the examiner should elaborate, discussing the evidence or reasoning that leads the examiner to such a conclusion.”).
