                                KARL MUSSIG, and DANIEL VERHOEVEN                                             
                                              Appeal No. 2006-2534                                            
                                            Application No. 10/789,411                                        
                                           HEARD: JANUARY 9, 2007                                             
            Before RUGGIERO, SAADAT, and HOMERE, Administrative Patent Judges.                                
            SAADAT, Administrative Patent Judge.                                                              

                                             DECISION ON APPEAL                                               
                   This is a decision on appeal under 35 U.S.C.  134(a) from the Examiner’s final rejection  
            of claims 1 and 15.  Claims 4-13 have been allowed and claims 2, 3 and 14 have been objected to   
            by the Examiner as being dependent upon a rejected base claim, but indicated as allowable if      
            rewritten in independent form including all of the limitations of their base claim.               
                   We affirm.
