Apple's US 7,479,949

Flashback to December 7, 2012: Steve Jobs' most famous patent declared invalid

In re-exam 90/012,308 , there was an examiner interview on Feb. 22, 2013. The "summary" mailed on March 4, 2013 notes "Nothing was agreed upon."
There is a 102(b) rejection over the Wakai reference. There is much discussion of "heuristics."

In their response of 4 March 2013, Apple cites Ex parte Lee (BPAI 2012) for silence only showing what a reference fails to describe.

Peter J. Yim of Morrison and Foerster signed the response paper on behalf of Apple.
