Merrill  v.  Yeomans

MR. JUSTICE CLIFFORD dissenting.

I dissent from the opinion and judgment in this case, upon the ground that the invention, when the claim is properly construed, is an invention of the described new manufacture, and not, as decided by a majority of the court, merely for the process.

This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
