Therefore, the Examiner’s inherency position based on combining bits and pieces from disparate references constitutes reversible error.  PAR Pharm. Inc. v. TWI Pharms., Inc., 773 F.3d 1186, 1195 (Fed. Cir. 2014) (“[T]he concept of inherency must be limited when applied to obviousness, and is present only when the limitation at issue is the ‘natural result’ of the combination of prior art elements.”); accord In re Stepan Co., 868 F.3d 1342, 1348 (Fed. Cir. 2017).  

Cf. In re Dillon, 919 F.2d 688, 693 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (en banc) (explaining that, in certain circumstances, it is not necessary that both a structural similarity between a claimed and prior art composition be shown and that there be a suggestion or expectation from the prior art that the claimed composition will have the same or a similar property as one newly discovered by the applicant). 

Stepan, In re, 868 F.3d 1342, 123 USPQ2d 1838 (Fed. Cir. 2017) 2144.05

Dillon, In re, 919 F.2d 688, 16 USPQ2d 1897 (Fed. Cir. 1990) 2141 2144 2144.08 2144.09 2145

The obviousness inquiry requires a determination that a skilled artisan would have been motivated to combine the teachings of the prior art references to achieve the claimed invention, and that the skilled artisan would have had a reasonable expectation of success in doing so. Kinetic Concepts, Inc. v. Smith & Nephew, Inc., 688 F.3d 1342, 1360 (Fed. Cir. 2012). The presence or absence of a motivation to combine references in an obviousness determination is a question of fact. See Par Pharm., Inc. v. TWI Pharm., Inc., 773 F.3d 1186, 1196 (Fed. Cir. 2014). “The reasonable expectation of success requirement refers to the likelihood of success in combining references to meet the limitations of the claimed invention.” Intelligent Bio-Systems, Inc. v. Illumina Cambridge Ltd., 821 F.3d 1359, 1367 (Fed. Cir. 2016). In other words, “one must have a motivation to combine accompanied by a reasonable expectation of achieving what is claimed in the patent-at-issue.” Id.

In the instant case, we are not persuaded that the Examiner has provided sufficient articulated reasoning with a rational underpinning to explain how and/or why a person of ordinary skill in the art would have been led to the claimed invention by the cited art.

(“The reasonable expectation of success requirement for obviousness does not necessitate an absolute certainty for success.”). Moreover, even if Van der Ploeg could result in some attrition, a person of ordinary skill in the art would nonetheless be motivated to combine Van der Ploeg’s continuous transport apparatus with Hoover’s system because of the many advantages of the Van der Ploeg apparatus explained above. Cf. Medichem, S.A. v. Rolabo, S.L., 437 F.3d 1157, 1165 (Fed.

We find the Examiner’s reasoning to be sufficient to support the finding that Moody I inherently teaches “determining a number” of email messages, as claimed. Although a finding of inherency in the context of obviousness must meet a “high standard,” PAR Pharmaceutical, Inc. v. TWI Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 773 F.3d 1186, 1195 (Fed. Cir. 2014), the Examiner has satisfied it here, as “the limitation at issue necessarily must be present,” id. at 1196.

As our reviewing court has explained, “the use of inherency, a doctrine originally rooted in anticipation, must be carefully circumscribed in the context of obviousness.” PAR Pharmaceutical, Inc. v. TWI Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 2014 WL 6782649, 6 (Fed. Cir. 2014). In particular:

Inherency . . . may not be established by probabilities or possibilities. The mere fact that a certain thing may result from a given set of circumstances is not sufficient. If, however, the disclosure is sufficient to show that the natural result flowing from the operation as taught would result in the performance of the questioned function, it seems to be well settled that the disclosure should be regarded as sufficient. 


Id. at 7 (citing In re Oelrich, 666 F.2d 578, 581 (Fed. Cir. 1981). Hence, “the concept of inherency must be limited when applied to obviousness, and is present only when the limitation at issue is the ‘natural result’ of the combination of prior art elements.” Id. (emphasis added).
