  • In re Ikeda Food Research Co. (Fed. Cir. 2019)

    By Donald Zuhn –- Last week, in In re Ikeda Food Research Co., the Federal Circuit affirmed a decision by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Patent Trial and Appeal Board affirming the Examiner’s rejection in an ex parte reexamination of claims 22 and 23 of U.S. Application No. 12/851,668 for obviousness. On appeal before the Board, the challenged claims were found obvious in view of three references: European Patent Application Publication No. 0 094 161 (“Senior”) and U.S. Patent Nos. 6,656,702 (“Yugawa A”) and 6,059,946 (“Yugawa B”). Claim 22 of the ‘668 application recites (with emphasis in the opinion):…

    $$ This rotary movement causes the plunger 24 to advance by virtue of its threaded engagement with the inside of the drive collar 34. / この回転移動によって、プランジャ24は、駆動環34の内側とのネジ係合によって進むことになる。(USP8167834)

    $$ The pushers.465 then advance further to push the leading rivet 50 through the spring gate 464 and into the nose 436 via the side port 437 (FIG. 37d). / それから、プッシャー465は、側面のポート437(図37d)経由で、スプリング・ゲート464を通って、およびノーズ436へ先頭のリベット50を押すためにさらに進む。(USP6692213)

    (GO)
    $$ The seven columns numbered 1 to 7 are located on the X axis going left to right with COLD water indicated on the left and HOT water on the right. / 1から7の番号が付された7つの列が、左から右へと進むX軸上に配置されており、冷水が左に、温水が右に指示される。(USP8516628)

    $$ Although some of them may go to usefully illuminate the display, many will not. / これらの中にはディスプレイを実用的に照明するように進むものもあるが、多くはそうでない。(USP8432527)

    $$ However, the reference data must be complete for the final stages of software implementation and testing to go ahead. / しかしながら、参照データはソフトウェア実装の最終段階および次に進むための検査には完全でなければならない。(USP8311972)

    $$ Forward-scattered light passes into distal portion 50 through second aperture 55. / 散乱した光の前方は、第二の開口を通過して末端部分50へと進む。(USP8134706)

    $$ The gas from the heat exchanger 34 then passes to an expansion engine 35 such as a turbine connected to a brake or generator 38. / そして、熱交換器34からのガスは、ブレーキ、即ち、ジェネレータ38に接続されたタービン等の伸張エンジン35に進む。(USP6239957)

    (PROGRESS)
    $$ In the Figure a foreground object moves from right to left across a background area as the sequence of input images P, A, B and N progresses. / 同図では、入力画像P、A、B及びNのシーケンスが進むに従い、前景物体が背景領域を横切って右から左へ移動する。(USP8358878)

    $$ However, if this cannot be performed then the next preferred option will be used and so on, progressing down through the predetermined selection order. / しかし、これが行えない場合は、次に好適な方法を選択することになる。以下同様にして、所定の選択順を下方へと進む。(USP5353059)

    (PROCEED)
    $$ Thus as the process proceeds, a sintered part 95 is constructed, supported by unconsolidated powder parts 96. / このように工程が進むにつれ、未固の粉体部96によって支持される焼結部95が構成される。(USP8752294)

    $$ The user thus can proceed straight to retrieving the linked files using the token as described above in connection with FIG. 6. / このようにして、ユーザは図6に関連して前述されたようにトークンを使用してリンクされたファイルの取り出しに直接に進むことができる。(USP7578441)

    (RUN)
    $$ It is however possible to use a reverse arrangement in which the bearing means is carried on the base and runs in a track in or on the load bearing projection. / ただし、ベアリング手段がベース部に担持され、荷重支持突起内または荷重支持突起に面した走行路を進む逆の構成を使用することも可能である。(USP8955178)

    $$ The bleed tube (118) runs to the air aspiration tube (113) downstream of the filter (119), rather than into the aspirate collection vessel (12a). / 抽気管(118)は、吸引物収集容器(12a)ではなく、フィルタ(119)の下流側で空気吸引管(113)まで進む。(USP8235955)

    (TRAVEL)
    $$ The ram 4 is now free to travel forwards in the direction indicated by the arrow in FIG. 21, under the power of the spring 40. / 押し込み具4は、ばね40の付勢により、自由に前方(図21で矢印で示す方向)へ進むことができる。(USP7645265)

    $$ Another method for determining the distance is to measure the time taken for signals to travel between the two stations. / 距離を求めるための別の方法は、信号が2つの局の間を進むのにかかる時間を測定することである。(USP7595755)

    (OTHERS)
    $$ Moving to FIG. 3c the two traps are incident on separate regions of the droplet and are beginning to deform the droplet shape. / 図3cに進むと、2つのトラップは液滴の別々の領域に入射し、液滴の形状を変形し始める。(USP8183540): move
