WHIPgroup succeeded in obtaining a reversal from the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) based solely on its appeal briefs. The claimed invention concerns a container crane control system which utilizes cropped images relative to captured images to control movement of a load. The Examiner had rejected all claims as being obvious and asserted that the prior art taught cropped images. In the appeal briefs, WHIPgroup argued that the Examiner relied upon an unreasonable interpretation of the prior art and failed to articulate a reason sufficient to justify an obviousness conclusion. Convinced by these arguments, the PTAB reversed all rejections to the claims. An allowance of the application is expected in due course.
