3725 GENESIS ATTACHMENTS, LLC Requester, Appellant v. ALLIED ERECTING AND DISMANTLING CO., INC., et al. Respondents 95001352 7,121,489 11/240,914 SONG 103 102/103 37 C.F.R. § 41.77(b) 103 THE WEBB LAW FIRM, P.C. ENGLISH, PETER C original SELF, SHELLEY M

The Requester cites to a footnote in Intellectual Pro. Dev., Inc. v. UA-Columbia Cablevision of Westchester, Inc. in support of its assertions, but the footnote merely states that the court "see[s] no reason why, as a matter of law, one claim limitation may not be responsive to another merely because they are located in the same physical structure" in reversing a district courts granting of summary judgment of invalidity. Intellectual Pro. Dev., 336 F.3d 1308, 1320, fn. 9 (Fed. Cir. 2003). The footnote in Intellectual Pro. Dev. does not stand for the proposition that a single structure can be read upon multiple claim limitations would be reasonable and correct irrespective of the facts of the case. In fact, In re Kelly, also relied upon by the Requester and cited as precedent in the above noted footnote of Intellectual Pro. Dev., makes clear that claim interpretation must be reasonable. In re Kelly, 305 F.2d 909, 915-16 (CCPA 1962) ("In a case such as this, where there is no ambiguity in the language of the claims, they should be carefully analyzed to see if they can be reasonably found to be supported by the disclosed structure. … Each claim in each case must be interpreted as broadly as its language will reasonably permit and each interpretation will depend upon the individual facts of each case. … The governing consideration is not double inclusion, but rather is what is a reasonable construction of the language of the claims.")(emphasis added).

Kelly, In re, 305 F.2d 909, 134 USPQ 397 (CCPA 1962). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .2173.05(o)
