auxiliary forces introduced in such a treatment are identified

2-page TLS from Konrad Sannig & Co, G.m.b.H. The legal
advisers found that in his expert opinion (Vol. 7, Doc. 30)
Einstein formulated the claim of patent DRP 269498 very
clearly by distinguishing between processes that do not
make use of mechanical treatments more than necessary for
shaping the material and those that include additional
mechanical treatment. Ask whether the conclusion can be
drawn that processes falling into the first group cannot
infringe on patents for processes of the second group,
among them AEG patent 269498. On the verso of the first
page there is a note in Ilse Einstein’s hand: “Mit die in I.
