Cir. 1983) ("an invention may be held to have been either obvious (or nonobvious) without a specific finding of a particular level of skill or the reception of expert testimony on the level of skill where, as here, the prior art itself reflects an appropriate level"); Okajima v. Bourdeau, 261 F.3d 1350, 1355 (Fed. Cir. 2001) ( [T]he absence of specific findings on the level of skill in the art does not give rise to reversible error 'where the prior art itself reflects an appropriate level and a need for testimony is not shown'") (quoting Litton Indus.

In cases where the patents and prior art are "easily understandable, a factual determination of the level of skill in the art was unnecessary.... [one] cannot, argue that an unnecessary fact is material. It makes only a naked allegation that some unspecified higher level of skill should have been applied." Chore-time Equipment, Inc. v. Cumberland Corp., 713 F.2d 774, 779 (Fed. Cir 1983).
