I am looking at a particular patent where they are claiming a GUI (graphical user interface) that contains a draggable interactive controller as a critical element of the invention.
But one of the images in the application has a simple tick box for the user to specify what is applicable. In the application (not in the claims section), they are saying that image is an embodiment of the invention.
Do I have ground to object to the USPTO that their image is inconsistent with claims?
If they manage to get a patent for it, would I (if I use the tick box interface), have defence against their claims?
