1617 Ex Parte NISHIGUCHI et al 12978825 - (D) FREDMAN 103 41.50 103 WENDEROTH, LIND & PONACK, L.L.P. ZHANG, YANZHI

Therefore, not only was no comparison performed with other surfactants, but the evidence is not
commensurate in scope with the ranges of claim 1. Harris found that “showing of unexpected results is not commensurate in scope with the degree of protection sought by the claimed subject matter because ... the record does not show that the improved performance would result if the weight-percentages were varied within the claimed ranges.” In re Harris, 409 F.3d 1339, 1344 (Fed. Cir. 2005).

Harris, In re, 409 F.3d 1339, 74 USPQ2d 1951 (Fed. Cir. 2005) 2144.05

To establish a long-felt and unmet need, the following elements must be proven: First, the need must have been persistent and recognized by skilled artisans. In re Gershon, 312 F.2d 535, 538 (CCPA 1967). Second, the long-felt need must not have been satisfied by another before Appellants’ invention. See Newell Companies, Inc. v. Kenney Mfg. Co., 864 F.2d 757, 768 (Fed. Cir. 1988) (“[O]nce another supplied the key element, there was no long-felt need or, indeed, a problem to be solved.”). And third, Appellants’ invention must satisfy the need. In re Cavanagh, 436 F.2d 491, 496 (CCPA 1971).
