Title: Need an example of patent not passing obvious test
Post by kennethc on Feb 4th, 2007, 2:12pm


Can someone provide real life cases (i.e. based
on the court verdict)?

I'm not sure what you mean by "passing" but start with KSR v Teleflex:  http://www.supremecourtus.gov/opinions/06pdf/04-1350.pdf  

Also try looking up:
Syngenta Seeds Inc. v. Monsanto
Leapfrog Enterprices Inc. v. Fisher-Price
Omegaflex, Inc. v. ParkerHannifin
Frazier v. Layne Christensen Co.
Pfizer v. Apotex

If you are looking for a recent case where claims were held to not be obvious, try:
Takeda Chemical Indus. v. Alphapharm (affirmed non-obviousness)

"Passing" was probably meant to mean "Overcoming"?
