Biosig Instruments, Inc., the Supreme Court rejected the Federal Circuit's rule that a claim is valid so long as it is not "insolubly ambiguous"; under the Court's test, a "patent's claims, [when] viewed in light of the specification and prosecution history, [must] inform those skilled in the art about the scope of the invention with reasonable certainty."
