 WHIPgroup obtained another reversal from the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. The invention is directed to a computer-generated overlay for identifying areas of interest during surgery. The Patent Office issued a final office action rejecting all claims for being obvious over a combination of several references. WHIPgroup pursued an Appeal and argued prior art telestrations failed to teach predefined overlay patterns. After oral argument, the Board agreed with WHIPgroup’s arguments that the Patent Office incorrectly interpreted the claim language and reversed all rejections.
