Appellants contend that “the Examiner utilized hindsight afforded by the present invention by taking the reasoned rationale for making the combination directly out of Appellants’ own specification rather than basing the rationale on facts gleaned from the prior art.”  (App. Br. 11; see also Reply Br. 2–3.)  

This argument is unpersuasive. 

 [E]vidence of a motivation to combine need not be found in the prior art references themselves, but rather may be found in “the knowledge of one of ordinary skill in the art or, in some cases, from the nature of the problem to be solved.” . . .  When not from the prior art references, the “evidence” of motive will likely consist of an explanation of the well-known principle or problem-solving strategy to be applied.   

Dystar Textilfarben GmbH & Co. Deutschland KG v. C.H. Patrick Co., 464 F.3d 1356, 1366 (Fed. Cir. 2006) (quoting In re Dembiczak, 175 F.3d 994, 999 (Fed. Cir. 1999)). 


[A]n implicit motivation to combine exists not only when a suggestion may be gleaned from the prior art as a whole, but when the “improvement” is technology-independent and the combination of references results in a product or process that is more desirable, for example because it is stronger, cheaper, cleaner, faster, lighter, smaller, more durable, or more efficient.  Because the desire to enhance commercial opportunities by improving a product or process is universal—and even commonsensical— . . . there exists in these situations a motivation to combine prior art references even absent any hint of suggestion in the references themselves.  In such situations, the proper question is whether the ordinary artisan possesses knowledge and skills rendering him capable of combining the prior art references.
