Lien entre les éléments revendiqués non supporté

Dans la cause Hyatt v. Dudas (June 28, 2006), la Cour a confirmé la décision de l’Examinateur du USPTO selon laquelle la description ne supportait pas la revendication et plus spécifiquement le lien entre ses différents éléments.

“While each element may individually be discussed neither
the specification nor drawings clearly support the claimed embodiment as a
whole.” Id. (emphasis added). He further indicated what Hyatt needed to address
his concern: “[I]t is not enough that applicant show where each claimed element
resides in the earliest filed application but [he] must also provide support for
the linkage of the claimed elements creating the embodiment.”
