In re Schreiber (C5P21): Previous Swiss patent for funnel that dispenses oil. New patent for dispensing a few popped kernels at a time.
(A) Why inherent anticipation analysis? Not anticipation because prior patent doesn’t say size of funnel is size ? X numbers of kernels get through. In the new patent, one element has a limitation.
(B) Patent not granted because the shape of the top was inherently the size of the limitation laid out in second patent.
