 Claim 1 is a method “comprising” certain steps.  The Federal Circuit has held “the open-ended term ‘comprising’ . . . . means that the named elements are essential, but other elements may be added and still form a construct within the scope of the claim.”  Genentech, Inc. v. Chiron Corp., 112 F.3d 495, 501 (Fed. Cir. 1997); David Netzer Consulting Eng’r LLC v. Shell Oil Co., 824 F.3d 989, 998 (Fed. Cir. 2016).  Thus, the claims as presently written do not preclude tracking and displaying additional information.

Genentech, Inc. v. Chiron Corp., 112 F.3d 495, 42 USPQ2d 1608 (Fed. Cir. 1997) 2111.03 2138.05 2163
