While the disclosure in Fujiyama on which the Examiner relies might suffice for anticipation of a claim involving the ultrasonic generation of bubbles in a cleaning process, the rejection is for obviousness. It is generally not logical to base obviousness on combinations of teachings that lead to the frustration or inoperability of the teachings of a reference. Cf. In re Gordon, 733 F.2d 900, 902 (Fed. Cir. 1984) (“if the French apparatus were turned upside down, it would be rendered inoperable for its intended purpose. . . In effect, French teaches away from the board’s proposed modification.”)

If the proposed modification would render the prior art invention being modified unsatisfactory for its intended purpose, then there is no suggestion or motivation to make the proposed modification. In re Gordon, 733 F.2d 900 (Fed. Cir. 1984). Nakagaki states, “it is an object of the present invention . . . to provide an elevator capable of further reducing the vertical height of a top space of an elevator shaft, of further stably suspending a cage, and comprising a reduced number of component parts.” Nakagaki ¶ 17 (emphasis added). The modification proposed by the Examiner would defeat this objective, thus, rendering Nakagaki unsatisfactory for this intended purpose. Accordingly, Appellants’ argument is persuasive.

In re Gordon, 733 F.2d 900,  902 (Fed. Cir. 1984). For example, our reviewing Court held that an invention was not obvious where the prior [art] taught the device required rigidity for operation whereas the claimed invention required resiliency.

Examining the entirety of each of the prior art references to determine whether it would have been obvious to combine Olsen’s electrically driven oil system into Champion, we conclude it would not because doing so would render Champion unsatisfactory for its intended purpose.

A “generic claim may define the boundaries of a vast genus of chemical compounds, and yet the question may still remain whether the specification, including original claim language, demonstrates that the applicant has invented species sufficient to support a claim to a genus.” Ariad Pharms., Inc. v. Eli Lilly & Co., 598 F.3d 1336, 1349 (Fed. Cir. 2010).

When a patent claims a genus using functional language to define a desired result, “the specification must demonstrate that the applicant has made a generic invention that achieves the claimed result and do so by showing that the applicant has invented species sufficient to support a claim to the functionally-defined genus.” AbbVie Deutschland GmbH & Co., KG v. Janssen Biotech, Inc., 759 F.3d 1285, 1299 (Fed. Cir. 2014) (quoting Ariad, 598 F.3d at 1349).


Ariad Pharms., Inc. v. Eli Lilly & Co., 598 F.3d 1336, 94 USPQ2d 1161 (Fed. Cir. 2010)(en banc) 2161 2181

AbbVie Duetschland GmbH & Co., KG v. Janssen Biotech, Inc., 759 F.3d 1285, 111 USPQ2d 1780 (Fed. Cir. 2014)  2163 ,   2163.01 ,   2163.05

The Federal Circuit confronted facts similar to those here in University of Rochester v. G.D. Searle & Co., Inc., 358 F.3d 916 (Fed. Cir. 2004). In that case, the patent claimed a method of selectively inhibiting the enzyme PGHS-2 (also known as COX-2) by “administering a non-steroidal compound that selectively inhibits activity of the PGHS-2 gene product in a human.” Id. at 918. The patent “described in detail how to make cells that express either COX-1 or COX-2, but not both …, as well as ‘assays for screening compounds, including peptides, polynucleotides, and small organic molecules to identify those that inhibit the expression or activity of the PGHS-2 gene product.[’]” Id. at 927.

The court held that the disclosure of screening assays and general classes of compounds was not adequate to describe compounds having the desired activity: without disclosure of which peptides, polynucleotides, or small organic molecules have the desired characteristic, the claims failed to meet the description requirement of § 112. See id. (“As pointed out by the district court, the ‘850 patent does not disclose just ‘which “peptides, polynucleotides, and small organic molecules” have the desired characteristic of selectively inhibiting PGHS-2.’ … Without such disclosure, the claimed methods cannot be said to have been described.”).

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. See Galderma Labs., L.P. v. Tolmar, Inc., 737 F.3d 731, 738 (Fed. Cir. 2013).
