System and method for providing reservations for restroom use
Assignee: IBM (filed Aug. 2000)
The present invention is an apparatus, system, and method for providing reservations for restroom use. In one embodiment, a passenger on an airplane may submit a reservation request to the system for restroom use. The reservation system determines when the request can be accommodated and notifies the passenger when a restroom becomes available. The system improves airline safety by minimizing the time passengers spent standing while an airplane is in flight.
What is claimed is:
1. A method of providing reservations for restroom use, comprising:
receiving a reservation request from a user; and notifying the user when the restroom is available for his or her use.

The Federal Circuit ruled that the use of a different process did not amount to an infringement of the product-by-process claim.
Example of Indian Patent Amendment Act, 2005 – section 3 (d) exclusion for salts, esters, ethers, polymorphs, metabolites, …unless they differ significantly in properties with regard to efficacy.
