3638 Ex Parte Sanders 12790521 - (D) KORNICZKY Dissenting STEPHENS 103 Maschoff Brennan JUNGE, KRISTINA N S

For the foregoing reasons, Appellant’s argument that Kimmet does not teach an “edge lit panel” is not persuasive of error in the Examiner’s rejection of claim 1.  Appellant’s additional arguments relating to claim 1 and the remaining claims are similarly not persuasive of error. Accordingly, I would affirm the Examiner’s rejections.

The word “persuasive” is not meant to suggest Appellant bears the ultimate burden of proving patentability. “After evidence or argument is submitted by the applicant in response [to a prima facie case of unpatentability], patentability is determined on the totality of the record, by a preponderance of evidence with due consideration to persuasiveness of argument.” In re Oetiker, 977 F.2d 1443, 1445 (Fed. Cir. 1992) (emphasis added); see also id. at 1445—46 (“The Board explained why it was unpersuaded by [Appellant’s] arguments on appeal. We discern no irregularity in the procedure.”). My conclusion “was reached after careful consideration of the appealed claims, the evidence of obviousness relied upon by the examiner and the arguments advanced by the appellant and the examiner.” Id. at 1445 (internal quotation omitted).

Oetiker, In re, 977 F.2d 1443, 24 USPQ2d 1443 (Fed. Cir. 1992)  707.07(f) ,   716.01(d) ,   1504.01(a) ,   2107.02 ,   2142 ,   2145 ,   2164.07
