Furthermore, “[p]rior art references may be ‘indicative of what all those skilled in the art generally believe a certain term means . . . [and] can often help to demonstrate how a disputed term is used by those skilled in the art.’”  In re Cortright, 165 F.3d 1353, 1358 (Fed. Cir. 1999) (citation omitted).

Our reviewing court has instructed that:

[U]nder the broadest reasonable interpretation, the Board's construction "cannot be divorced from the specification and the record evidence," In re NTP, Inc., 654 F.3d 1279, 1288 (Fed. Cir. 2011 ), and "must be consistent with the one that those skilled in the art would reach," In re Cortright, 165 F.3d 1353, 1358 (Fed. Cir. 1999). A construction that is "unreasonably broad" and which does not "reasonably reflect the plain language and disclosure" will not pass muster.

Microsoft Corp. v. Proxyconn, Inc., 789 F.3d 1292, 1298 (Fed. Cir. 2015) (quoting In re Suitco Surface, Inc., 603 F.3d 1255, 1260 (Fed. Cir. 2010)).

Although the PTO must give claims their broadest reasonable interpretation, this interpretation must be consistent with the one that those skilled in the art would reach." In re Cortright, 165 F.3d 1353, 1358 (Fed. Cir. 1999). "Prior art references may be 'indicative of what all those skilled in the art generally believe a certain term means ... [and] can often help to demonstrate how a disputed term is used by those skilled in the art.' Accordingly, the PTO's interpretation of claim terms should not be so broad that it conflicts with the meaning given to identical terms in other patents from analogous art." Id. (Citations omitted).
