Appellant AUBRUN-SONNEVILLE wins obviousness case
Ex parte ODILE AUBRUN-SONNEVILLE
As to anticipation
To achieve a composition meeting all of the limitations of claim 1,
however, a skilled worker would have to
choose parleam oil from the list of
preferred oils provided by Sonneville-A
ubrun. Anticipation does not allow
for such picking-and-choosing.
Net MoneyIN, Inc. v. VeriSign, Inc.
545 F.3d 1359, 1371 (Fed. Ci
r. 2008) (“[U]nless a [p
rior art] reference
discloses within the four corners of the document not only all of the
limitations claimed but also all of the
limitations arranged or combined in
the same way as recited in the clai
m, it cannot be said to prove prior
invention of the thing claimed and,
thus, cannot anticipate under 35 U.S.C.
In re Ochiai
