Yesterday we reported that the Patent Office Board of Appeals had affirmed a reexamination examiner’s rejection of certain claims LG Philips’ U.S. Patent No. 6,815,321, claiming a method for forming a thin film resistor for use in laptops, monitors and television sets. The Board has now affirmed eight distinct anticipation and obviousness rejections of a related LG patent claiming then film resistors, U.S. Patent No. 7,176,489.
