Device Component May "Receive" Data From Itself

The court rejected defendants' argument that a claim element construed to require "receipt" of certain data could not receive such data from itself. "[Defendants] argue that 'where one element . . . must receive data from another element . . . the two elements cannot be identical because one must provide data to the other' . . . On balance, [defendants] have not shown any limitation that an accused element cannot receive something [data] from itself. The Court expressly rejects [defendants'] proposal that the claims be interpreted or construed in such a manner."
