 Unexpected results that are probative of nonobviousness are those that are different in kind and not merely in degree from the results of the prior art.”  Galderma Labs., L.P. v. Tolmar, Inc., 737 F.3d 731, 739 (Fed. Cir. 2013) (internal citations omitted).  “Results which differ by percentages are differences in degree rather than kind, where the modification of the percentage is within the capabilities of one skilled in the art at the time.”  (Id.)  Appellant has not established that the allegedly superior and unexpected results are different in kind.

Further, we are not persuaded Simpson's inputting the number of pages (as opposed to an automatic word count) rises to the level of teaching away. See Galderma Labs., L.P. v. Tolmar, Inc., 737 F.3d 731, 738 (Fed. Cir. 2013) ("A reference does not teach away ... if it merely expresses a general preference for an alternative invention but does not criticize, discredit, or otherwise discourage investigation into the invention claimed.")

We also note that the "mere fact that generic pharmaceutical companies seek approval to market a generic version of a drug, without more, is not evidence of commercial success that speaks to the nonobviousness of patent claims."

Settled law maintains that a broader independent claim cannot be nonobvious where a dependent claim stemming from that independent claim is invalid for obviousness. See Soverain Software LLC v. Victoria’s Secret Direct Brand Management, LLC, 778 F.3d 1311, 1315 (Fed. Cir. 2015).

Ct. 2740 (U.S. 2014) (“A reference does not teach away, . . . if it merely expresses a general preference for an alternative invention but does not criticize, discredit, or otherwise discourage investigation into the invention claimed.”)

Although paragraph 438, cited by Appellants, states that “[s]uch voice capture is likely to be suboptimal in many situations, however, for example when there is substantial background noise, and accurate voice recognition is a difficult task at the best of times,” we do not agree this qualifying remark would lead a person of ordinary skill in a divergent direction as would be necessary for teaching away.
