The Federal Circuit may view an obvious-to-try rationale as a type of design-choice rationale. Uber v. X One, 957 F.3d at 1338–39. The court stated “[t]he [Supreme] Court’s discussion of design choices and predictable variations [in KSR] is instructive here.” Id. (citing KSR, Int’l Co. v. Teleflex Inc., 550 U.S. 398, 415–417 (2007)). The court then quoted KSR’s description of “a finite number of identified, predictable solutions” as an “instance . . . [of being] obvious to try.” Uber v. X One, 957 F.3d at 1338– 39 (citing KSR, 550 U.S. at 421).
