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 admissable
under the Federal Rules of Evidence. The weight to be given any
particular record necessarily must be determined on a case-by-case basis.
