1616 Ex Parte Vial et al 12991506 - (D) FLAX 103 Winston & Strawn LLP HIRT, ERIN E

A claim can be obvious even where all of the claimed features are not found in specific prior art references, where “there is a showing of a suggestion or motivation to modify the teachings of [the prior art] to the claimed invention.” SIBIA Neurosciences, Inc. v. Cadus Pharm. Corp., 225 F.3d 1349,1356 (Fed. Cir. 2000) (concluding that patent would have been obvious in light of teachings in prior art which provided motivation and suggestion to modify existing techniques to arrive at method in question).

Ormco Corp. v. Align Tech., Inc., 463 F.3d 1299, 1307 (Fed. Cir. 2006).

However, “[e]ven when obviousness is based on a single prior art reference, there must be a showing of a suggestion or motivation to modify the teachings of that reference.” In re Kotzab, 217 F.3d 1365, 1370 (Fed. Cir. 2000).

“The mere fact that the prior art may be modified in the manner suggested by the Examiner does not make the modification obvious unless the prior art suggested the desirability of the modification.” In re Fritch, 972 F.2d 1260, 1266 (Fed. Cir. 1992).
