“Double patenting rejections are based on a comparison of claims. In double patenting rejections, the disclosure of the patent or application may be relied upon only to define the claim.” MPEP § 1504.06. “[T]he claims of a patent are not limited in scope to the best mode for practicing the invention or to any particular mode for practicing the invention that is described in the specification or drawings.” Lockheed Aircraft Corp. v. United States, 553 F.2d 69, 79 (Ct. Cl. 1977).

As our reviewing court has pointed out, ordinary creativity and/or common sense “cannot be used as a wholesale substitute for reasoned analysis and evidentiary support, especially when dealing with a limitation missing from the prior art references specified.” DSS Tech. Mgmt., Inc. v. Apple Inc., 885 F.3d 1367, 1374 (Fed. Cir. 2018) see also id. at 1374–75 (“In cases in which common sense is used to supply a missing limitation, as distinct from a motivation to combine, . . . our search for a reasoned basis for resort to common sense must be searching.”) (internal quotations omitted).

The Examiner’s rejection, however, has not overcome the presumption that “means plus function” analysis does not apply here. In addition, the record, which includes the claim language and Appellant’s disclosure, does not support the Examiner’s findings or conclusion that § 112(f) should apply to the disputed terms.

When analyzing whether the presumption against applying § 112(f) is overcome, we consider how a claim limitation is “used in the context of the relevant claim language.” Advanced Ground Info. Sys., Inc. v. Life360, Inc., 830 F.3d 1341, 1348 (Fed. Cir. 2016). Further, “[i]n undertaking this analysis, we ask if the claim language, read in light of the specification, recites sufficiently definite structure,” which avoids application of § 112(f). Media Rights Techs., Inc. v. Capital One Fin. Corp., 800 F.3d 1366, 1372–73 (Fed. Cir. 2015) (analyzing specification to determine if term was described in specific structural terms).
