1618 Ex Parte Gibson et al 15418304 - (D) GRIMES 103 K&L Gates LLP-Chicago DICKINSON, PAUL W

We agree with Appellants that In re Baird, 16 F.3d 380 (Fed. Cir. 1994), is instructive here. In Baird, the claim was directed to a composition comprising a bisphenol A polyester containing an aliphatic dicarboxylic acid selected from succinic acid, glutaric acid, or adipic acid. Id. at 381. The cited reference disclosed esters of a dicarboxylic acid and any one of a genus of diphenols corresponding to a particular formula. Id. 

The prior art formula encompassed bisphenol A. Id. at 382. However, "[t]he fact that a claimed compound may be encompassed by a disclosed generic formula does not by itself render that compound obvious." Id. The court concluded that, " [ w ]hile the [prior art] formula unquestionably encompasses bisphenol A when specific variables are chosen, there is nothing in the disclosure of [ the prior art] suggesting that one should select such variables." Id.

Examiner's position is "[i]f the cosmetic agents of the claims are not already known in the literature, then it is Appellant's responsibility to disclose them in the specification." Id. at 10.

The Examiner reasons, however, that a modification to reduce from the first part to the second part in a step like manner would have been obvious because such a modification would require a mere change in shape of the element. It has been held that a mere change in shape of an element is generally recognized as being within the level of ordinary skill in the art when the change in shape is not significant to the function of the element. (Id. at 11. 16-19, citing In re Dailey, 357 F.2d 669 (CCPA 1966).)
