see, e.g., In re Mochel, 470 F.2d 638, 640 (CCPA 1972) (holding the phrase “up to” includes zero as the lower limit). The Examiner finds that the formula in the claims (Al + 0.56Ti + 0.29Nb + 0.15Ta < 3.9) does not prevent a conclusion of obviousness because “there is no invention in the discovery of a general formula if it covers a composition described in the prior art.” Id. at 3-4 (citing, inter alia, In re Cooper, 134 F.2d 630, 632 (CCPA 1943). The Cooper court held that “[p]atentability of the claims may not rest solely on the fact that the carbon contents specified therein are calculated from the formula.” “Appellants’ entire contention herein is that, unless there is specifically set out in the prior art an alloy produced by their formula, such prior art may not be used in denying patentability to their claims. We cannot agree with such contention.” Cooper, 134 F.2d at 632.
