2100 Patentability

Incomplete citation to Symantec in 2106.04(a)(2)(II.)(A.)

MPEP 2106.04(a)(2)(II.)(A.) introduces the full citation for Intellectual Ventures I LLC v. Symantec Corp., which is then relied upon for the pincite for the rest of the MPEP.

However, the first full citation to this case is missing its identification of the Federal Circuit in the last part of the citation. It just provides the year of the decision, which is the form that is usually reserved for when it is otherwise clear from looking at the reporter. In this case, the reporter is the whole third edition of the federal decisions reporter, so the CAFC needs to be identified in the last part of the citation, as follows: Intellectual Ventures I LLC v. Symantec Corp., 838 F.3d 1307, 1313, 120 USPQ2d 1353, 1356 (Fed. Cir. 2016).
