"Generally the owner of the patent (inventors and/or assignees) are entitled to the claimed invention or any 'obvious' improvement over the claimed invention.  In some cases it may be obvious to omit or change a step.

 
This probably overstates the doctrine of equivalents a bit.   The CAFC's "all elements rule" pretty much means that the DOE generally won't allow a claim to cover an omitted step.
