3647 Ex Parte Wood 12735536 - (D) WIEDER 102/103 NIXON & VANDERHYE, PC HAWK, STEVEN

 In view of the above, we are persuaded that the Examiner erred in determining that one of ordinary skill in the art would have understood the term “three dimensional shock bump” to simply mean a shock bump “having the dimensions of a height, a width and a depth.” (See Answer 3, emphasis omitted.) Indeed, the specification and cited references support that the term “three dimensional shock bump” has a special meaning to a person of ordinary skill in the art that would take the Examiner’s interpretation in this case beyond the broadest reasonable interpretation. See AquaTex Indus., Inc. v. Techniche Sols., 419 F.3d 1374, 1382 (Fed. Cir. 2005).
