This case involved an appeal from the decision of the U.S. Patent Office Board of Appeals affirming the final rejection of a patent application for a new composition of matter and process of making that composition. The court framed the issues as (1) whether it is necessary that the utility of an alleged invention be disclosed in the application, and, if so, (2) whether a disclosure of utility was made in the instant case.
The court affirmed the decision of the Board of Appeals, finding that an assertion of utility is required in a patent application and that â€œthere is nothing in the application which asserts utility nor anything indicating what use of the product may be made.â€
