As Appellants point out (Br. 20), the Supreme Court indicated in Diamond v. Diehr 450 U.S. 175, 211 n. 34 (1981) that the Court of Customs and Patent Appeals in Halliburton and Abrams failed to understand or disregarded the distinction between eligible subject matter and novelty, and the Supreme Court explained that "[t]he question [] of whether a particular invention is novel is 'wholly apart from whether the invention falls into a category of statutory subject matter."' Diehr, 450 U.S. at 190 (citing In re Bergy, 596 F.2d 952, 961 (CCPA 1979)).

A prima facie case is established when the party with the burden of proof points to evidence that is sufficient, if uncontroverted, to entitle it to prevail as a matter of law. See Saab Cars USA, Inc. v. United States, 434 F.3d 1359, 1369 (Fed. Cir. 2006).

Merely citing a legal principle, without sufficient reasoning or application of such a principle to the facts, is not enough. Cf In re Cofer, 354 F.2d 664, 667 (CCPA 1966) ("[I]t is facts appearing in the record, rather than prior decisions in and of themselves, which must support the legal conclusion of obviousness."). The Examiner cites In re Karlson as though it set forth a per se rule that omission of an element in the prior art is always obvious when the remaining elements perform the same functions. Final Act. 3. It did not, and per se rules are generally inconsistent with the analysis required under § 103.
