As you astutely point out, an extremely valuable case when faced with an absurd application of the BRI doctrine in patent prosecution. I'm glad to see that the Federal Circuit is willing reign in rogue applications of BRI. I've had several instances patent prosecution where the claim language is read completely out of context and inconsistent with how the particular claim term(s) is used and defined in the application.

Amen to the court! I will quote the reality quote as often as I Ican


Liberally and often, right on!
