2100 Patentability

Grammatical error in 2111.05 trending idea

The second sentence of 2111.05 reads "Since a claim must be read as a whole, USPTO personnel may not disregard claim limitations comprised of printed matter."

 

The word "comprised" is synonymous with "included" or "contained." It does not make sense to refer to claim limitations "comprised of" printed matter, because it does not make sense to refer to claim limitations being "included of" printed matter or "contained of" printed matter. Therefore, I think the phrase should be dropped in favor of "comprising" or "that comprises."
