(119)                   Admissibility of Electronic Records
                               in Interferences

   Pursuant to 37 CFR    1.671, electronic records are
admissible as evidence in interferences before the Board of Patent
Appeals and Interferences to the same extent that electronic records are
admissible under the Federal Rules of Evidence. The weight to be given
any particular record necessarily must be determined on a case-by-case
