In order to be patentable, under 35 USC 103, an invention must be a
non-obvious improvement over prior art. Thus, a § 103 rejection means
the examiner considers the invention at issue to be obvious. The
rejection can be tricky because often the prior art that allegedly
teaches the invention at issue is not disclosed in a single reference,
but can be inferred from a combination of references. This
presentation intends to give basic information on § 103 rejections and
tips for responding.
