Can a claim be obvious using “common sense” or “ordinary creativity?” DDS v. Apple

IPR PTABCast: DSS Technology v. Apple

Summary:  Can a claim be obvious using “common sense” or “ordinary creativity?"

No! Common sense or ordinary creativity cannot substitute for reasoned analysis and evidence! This puts a bar, albeit a low bar, on the PTO’s ability to waive their hands and find patent claims obvious. Listen to Craige explain how Apple and the PTO could not get over this bar to invalidate an early “IOT” claim.
