OCHIAI

As has often been pointed out, there are no per se rules in the law of obviousness. In re Ochiai, 71 F.3d 1565, 1572 (Fed. Cir. 1995) (“reliance on per se rules of obviousness is legally incorrect and must cease.”)
 
PLEUDDEMANN
 
The portion of the Appellant’s Specification which describes the Appellant’s claimed subject matter is not prior art against that subject matter. In re Pleuddemann, 910 F.2d 823 (Fed. Cir. 1990).
