This report addresses disavowal of claim scope2. When Is the Scope of a Claim Disavowed? To
shed some light on this issue, we look to the latest precedential decision of the CAFC as
excerpted below. This case illustrates the reason why practitioners ought to be very careful when
characterizing the prior art in drafting a patent application and in answering office actions during
prosecution.

“Techtronic Industries Co. LTD., Techtronic Industries North America, Inc, One World
Technologies, Inc., OWT Industries, Inc., ET Technology (WUXI) Co. LTD., Appellants v.

Honorable Senator Coons,
We followed with great interest the hearings of the Senate IP (Intellectual Property) Subcommittee regarding proposed changes to 35 USC Section 101. We have also reviewed the proposed amendment to same. We believe that the proposed amendment fixes most of the problems battled by the courts, the USPTO and the patent community in general in the past years. However, the proposed amendment does not address two categories of claims that should be patent eligible under 35 USC Section 101, which the courts have deemed patent ineligible. These categories are: (1) the so-called signal claims and (2) software claims.
