Class 206

SPECIAL RECEPTACLE OR PACKAGE


Class Definition:
Class 206 is the residual locus for: (a) a container configured to hold a particular article or set of articles or material; (b) a mercantile unit - i.e., means in or by which goods (article or material) are displayed, protected, packaged or arranged in a particular manner, to facilitate sale, transportation in commerce, use or storage or (c) a packet, compact or case carried on the person of a user.
(1) Note. Containers of this class type must function, by disclosure, to hold contents which in turn are to be eventually removed from the container.
(2) Note. Generally, specific container (or retainer) structure as defined above, in combination with composition or stock material characteristics of said structure is considered classifiable in Class 206. However, mere
"nominal" inclusion of a container (or retainer) in such combination is not considered "specific". For example: "A gas bag of dacron mesh laminated between mylar films," is considered properly classified elsewhere. Similarly, "An acid tank with walls made of leak stopping composition x, y, z" and "A match safe with walls made of fireproof material x, y, z," are considered subject matter for the appropriate composition class. See Lines With Other Classes and Within This Class and References to Other Classes, below.
(3) Note. Included here is a bale, bundle, roll, pile, stack or nest of articles (or material) which arrangement must be destroyed for use of an individual component or its contents-e.g., a roll of severably connected fasteners, an article or receptacle configured to nest or stack with another article or receptacle, or the knockdown interfitted arrangement of a device or article.
(4) Note. Generally, unless provided for in some other class as partially indicated under "SEARCH CLASS" below, the combination of an article (or material) and its containment means is to be found in this (206) class. However, the claimed disclosure of content is ordinarily not a basis for intra class distinctions among the subclasses therein.
(5) Note. Included here is a package for (or with) a plurality of articles or material, or an arrangement of articles or material, which articles or materials are to be used together (successively or cooperatively) in any operation or to make a definite solution, mixture, composition or assemblage.
(6) Note. Included here is a container, package or packing element under the class definition having (a) means for displaying an article or material, (b) indicia, a sign, panel or simulation means or (c) an indicator relative to the container or contents.
(7) Note. Included here is a container wherein the content (article or material) included, or to be included therein, bears some relationship to the container other than mere containment.
(8) Note. Placement of patents within class schedule. Patents issued since 1940 have been classified, both for original and cross reference placement, in accord with the claimed disclosure. However, patents issued prior to 1940 have generally been evaluated as to total disclosure, and thus placement of these older patents does not necessarily indicate lines of classification.
(9) Note. The subclass schedule and definitions, as revised and published in late 1973, represent an initial effort toward a realignment of the several receptacle classes-both with respect to each other and to other related classes. See Lines With Other Classes and Within This Class, below, for a further discussion of this topic.

LINES WITH OTHER CLASSES AND WITHIN THIS CLASS
The subclass schedule and definitions, as revised and published in late 1973, represent an initial effort toward a realignment of the several receptacle classes-both with respect to each other and to other related classes. Thus, as of this time (1973) no significant inter-class changes have been effected except with respect to the transfer from Class 220 into this (206) class of (a) portable carriers for plural beverage receptacles (subclasses 139+) and (b) nesting or stacking features (subclasses 499 - 520). As subsequent changes are completed they will be annotated in this section for emphasis.
Special attention is directed to the major receptacle classes listed below which, except as noted above, have not been modified as a result of this particular reclassification in 1973.
150, Purses, Wallets, and Protective Covers
190, Trunks and Hand-Carried Luggage
215, Bottles and Jars
217, Wooden Receptacles
220, Receptacles
229, Envelopes, Wrappers, and Paperboard Boxes
312, Supports: Cabinet Structure
As between Class 206 and the other receptacle classes, above, claimed disclosure of (a) content (article or material) in combination with the container or retainer structure or (b) specific retainer structure, per se, is classified in Class 206. However, the following language is not considered as "claimed disclosure" for Class 206.
"A container for (a named article or material) ..."
"A container adapted to hold (a named article or material) ..."
"A (named article or material) container ..."
Similarly, a mere multi-compartmented or partitioned container, is not "special" or specific retainer structure for Class 206.

422, Chemical Apparatus and Process Disinfecting, Deodorizing, Preserving, or Sterilizing, subclass 61 for chemical test package or kit; subclasses 99+ for laboratory receptacles; and other appropriate subclasses for containers for that class.
An alternative electronic search of U.S. patents based upon a modification of the European Patent Office Classification (ECLA) System for certain subject matter in this subclass may also be found in Class 422 Cross-Reference Art Collections 908-948. (There are no definitions associated with these Cross-Reference Art Collections. The most available disclosure as to the types of documents contained herein is given in any notes associated with the titles.)

426, Food or Edible Material: Processes, Compositions, and Products, 70 for a food package. A food package for Class 426 must claim the content as a food either specifically or
on the basis of sole disclosure. Recital of food and nonfood as alternative content will effect classification in this (206) class.
428, Stock Material or Miscellaneous Articles, appropriate subclasses for structure falling within the Class 428 and further modified by the bare recital that such other structure is (a) in the form of a "roll", "reel", "drum", "coil", "stack", "pile", "bale", or (b) "packaged" or "within a container".

Only a representative sample of those patents have had a cross reference placed in subclasses 37+ and 38+. Therefore, a full search for features considered of import with respect to size must include such higher subclasses.

Subclass: 389 [Patents]

This subclass is indented under the class definition. A container or wrapper, for coiled or wound material with or without supporting structure (e.g., core or spool) wherein the coiling or winding, or unwinding, is disclosed as performed while said material is disassociated from the encompassing container or wrapper.
(1) Note. The material may be (a) relatively wide fabric (e.g., sheeting, wire fencing, batting, floor covering, etc.), (b) narrow band (e.g., tape bandaging, film etc.) (c) attenuated (e.g., strand, tube, wire, cable, etc.) and (d) single or multilayer.
(2) Note. The term "encompassing container or wrapper" includes: (a) a box with or without a lid (b) a bag or envelope (c) a sheet covering-solid, foraminous or
articulated (d) a strand, or band, toroid-coiled about the wound material, i.e., transversely through a central axially opening (e) a peripheral band, tube or cylinder with end closures.
(3) Note. The term "disassociated" is used to indicate that there is a destruction (or irreversible modification) of wrapper, package, cover material retainer structure in order to wind or unwind content material. Thus undoing a mere fold, flap or tuck in cover material is not destruction. However, note that subclasses 53, 54 and 55 have been retained in this class (206) though the clamp retainer is not destroyed to wind or unwind content. See search note to Class 242, below.
