PTAB in Ex parte Stralin: the name of the game is the claim
We note that
"[i]t is a bedrock principle of patent law
that the claims of a patent define the
invention to which the patentee is
entitled the right to exclude."
Phillips v. AWH Corp., 415 F.3d 1303, 1312 (Fed. Cir.
2005) (en banc) (internal
quotations omitted). In other words, “the name of
the game is the claim.”
In re Hiniker Co., 150 F.3d 1362, 1369 (Fed. Cir. 1998).
