Claim Requiring "Codes" is not Entitled to a Scope of Equivalents Covering a Single "Code"

"[T]he term 'codes' is not entitled to a scope of equivalents covering 'code' . . . it would defy logic to make a distinction between 'code' and 'codes' during claim construction, then find 'codes' meant 'code' under the doctrine of equivalents."

Sony Electronics Inc, et al v. Guardian Media Tech, 3-05-cv-01777
(CASD August 31, 2009, Order) (Gonzalez, J.)
