I am reading one patent. One claim contains the statement: object A movable relative to object B. My understanding is that object A can be movable, B is fixed and the motion is relative to object B. Can I fix object A and move object B? Does my proposal infringe the claim?
Someone would need to know much more about the patent and your planned work-around to provide a very useful answer. I can say that if that is the actual claim wording it is un-artful. The reason claim language uses relative motion between two objects is to avoid this loophole. Relative motion should be used in the sentence so it covers any way that the described motion can be done regardless of which stays still, if anything. For example, a claim on microwave ovens with motorized lazy susans should say the microwave radiation source and the object being cooked move relative to each other.
