The Examiner’s interpretation of the term “criterion” is unreasonably broad, because it is untethered from the Specification’s disclosure (see Morris, 127 F.3d at 1054) and from the enlightenment provided by the dependent claims (see Vitronics Corp. v. Conceptronic, Inc., 90 F.3d 1576, 1582 (Fed. Cir. 1996)).

Nevertheless, “interpreting what is meant by a word in a claim is not to be confused with adding an extraneous limitation appearing in the specification, which is improper.” In re Cruciferous Sprout Litigation, 301 F.3d 1343, 1348 (Fed. Cir. 2002) (emphasis omitted).

However, the broadest reasonable interpretation differs from the broadest possible interpretation. In re Smith Int'l, Inc., 871 F.3d 1375, 1383 (Fed. Cir. 2017). The correct inquiry in giving a claim term its broadest reasonable interpretation in light of the specification is "an interpretation that corresponds with what and how the inventor describes his invention in the specification, i.e., an interpretation that is 'consistent with the specification."' Smith, 871 F.3d at 1382-83 (quoting In re Morris, 127 F.3d 1048, 1054 (Fed. Cir. 1997)).

However, the broadest reasonable interpretation differs from the broadest possible interpretation. In re Smith Int'l, Inc., 871 F.3d 1375, 1383 (Fed. Cir. 2017). The correct inquiry in giving a claim term its broadest reasonable interpretation in light of the specification is "an interpretation that corresponds with what and how the inventor describes his invention in the specification, i.e., an interpretation that is 'consistent with the specification."' Smith, 871 F.3d at 1382-83 (quoting In re Morris, 127 F.3d 1048, 1054 (Fed. Cir. 1997)).
