The nonstatutory double patenting rejection is based on a judicially created doctrine grounded in public policy (a policy reflected in the statute) so as to prevent the unjustified or improper timewise extension of the "right to exclude" granted by a patent and to prevent possible harassment by multiple assignees. See In re Goodman, I 1 F.3d 1046,29 USPQ2d 2010 (Fed. Cir. 1993); In re Longi, 759 F.2d 887,225 USPQ 645 (Fed. Cir. 19S5); In re Van Ornum, 686 F.2d 937,214 USPQ 761 (CCPA 1982); In re Vogel, 422 F.2d 438, 164 USPQ 619 (CCPA 1970);and,In re Thorington, 418 F.2d 528, 163 USPQ 644 (CCPA 1969). A timely filed terminal disclaimer in compliance with 37 CFR 1.3210 may b'e used to overcome an actual or provisional rejection based on a nonstatutory double patenting ground provided the conflicting application or patent is shown to be commonly owned with this application. See 37 CFR 1.130(b). Effective January 1, 1994, a registered attorney or agent of record may sign a terminal disclaimer. A terminal disclaimer signed by the assignee must fully comply with 37 CFR 3.73(b). 2. Claims 195 -218 are rejected under the judicially created doctrine of obviousness-type double patenting as being unpatentable over claims 1-70 of Patent No.4,963,995 . Although the conflicting claims are not identical, they are not patentably distinct from each other because the difference between claims 195-218 of the present application and US Pat No .4,963,995 is that claims 195-218,of the present application recites that the video information is representing for a full motion program . However, it is noted that transmitting and receiving a video motion program is well known in the art at the time the invention was made . Therefore, Official Notice is taken and it would have been obvious to one of ordinary skill in the art to modify claims 1- 80 of US Pat No, 4,963,995 by proving the transreceiver as recited in claim 1-80 of the US Pat No. . .. . . . .- . . ._l_.._._-..l ._--_ ... .. .. __ ..~ . , .. , . . . .. --..___,_ -. . , ,.. . ...,.. . . .. . . . .. ..- APBU-00000658 Case 3:06-cv-00019-MHP Document 79-9 Filed 12/09/2006 Page 3 of 31 Application/Control Number: 08/896,727 I , Page 3 Art Unit: 2712 4,963,995 with the video.information as motion video information and transmitting the video motion program from the transceiver apparatus to produce the claims 195-218 of the present application. 3.

The error occurred in good faith and correction thereof does not involve such changes in the patent as would constitute new matter or would require re-examination. A Certificate of Correction is requested. Patent number 5,995,705 (`705) is a file wrapper continuation of application No. 081624,958, filed March 28, 1996, now abandoned, which is a continuation of application No. 071976,542, filed Nov. 16, 1992, now abandoned, which is a division of application No. 071775,182, filed November 11, 1991, now Pat. No. 5,164,839, which is a division of application No. 071347,629, filed May 5, 1989, now Pat. No. 5,057,932, which is a continuation-in-part of application No. 07/289,776, filed December 27, 1988, now Pat. No. 4,963,995. 02/19/2002 RAHtlED2 OOOOOOOB 5995705 01 FC:145 100.00 OP APBU-00000679 Case 3:06-cv-00019-MHP Document 79-9 Filed 12/09/2006 Page 24 of 31 -. , i Due to a good faith mistake by applicant, the `705 patent incorrectly identifies application No. 07/775,182 as being a division of applicationNo. 07/289,776. It is, in fact, a division of 071347,629, which is in turn a continuation-in-partof application No. 071289,776. Application No 07/775,182, now Pat. No. 5,164,839, correctly identifies its heritage. Applicant's good faith error appears on the cover page of the patent under Section 63- Related U.S. Application Data. Case law supports the classification of this type of error as being of minor character and correctable by Certificate. In the matter o f h re Lambach,' Patent No. 3,009,855 (`855) was a division of application No. 753,644, which was a continuation-in-part of application No. 531,274.2 No claim of priority was made in the `855 specification, but a reference to application No. 753,644 was made in the oath.3 The examiner noticed the reference, and added application , No. 753,644 to the specification by examiner's amendment! The applicant requested a certificate of correction based on 37 CFR 1.322 (PTOmistake) or, in the alternative, 37 CFR 1.323 (Applicant mistake).' The court denied the 1.322 claim, finding that the mistake was, in fact, the applicants, and then denied the 1.323 claim because of the absence of any showing that the mistake was made in good faith? However, the court specifically stated: [Mlost of the requirements for granting a Certificate appear to be met. Omission of a reference to an earlier application on which priority is based is a mistake "of minor character" which i s correctable by Certificate. In re Van Esdonk et al., 187 USPQ 671. Correction would not involve the addition of new matter, since the relation between the several cases here involved is a matter of record. No reexamination would be required? The facts involved in the `705 patent are analogous to the facts involving the `855 patent. Both patents made a claim to prior application and both patents incorrectly traced the lineage of ' 202 USPQ 620 (Comm'r Pat. 1976). 'Id. Id. 'Id. `Id. at621. Id. APBU-00000680 Case 3:06-cv-00019-MHP Document 79-9 Filed 12/09/2006 Page 25 of 31 I i // that prior application. Although the Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks denied a Certificate in Lambrech, the decision was based on a failure to show that the mistake was made in good faith.' The Commissioner went on to unequivocally state that he would grant a Certificate "if a renewed request is filed, accompanied by a suitable showing of good faith and upon payment of the required fee."g . Applicant's attorney (authority pursuant to 37 C.F.R. 1.34(a)) submits a statement (below) attesting to the fact that the aforementioned error was made in good faith. Applicant also encloses a check for the required fee. Should the amount on the check be insufficient, the enclosed fee transmittal form authorizes the Commissioner to charge any additional fees which may be required to Deposit Account No. 06-0600. / Because applicant has satiGfied the requirements specified by the Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks, applicant respecthlly requests a Certificate of Correction be sent to John S. Ferrell, Esq. at Carr & Ferrell LLP, 2225 East Bayshore Road, Suite 200, Palo Alto, California 94303.
