Commissioner for Patents 

P.O. Box 1450 

Alexandria, VA 22313-1450 

Madam: 

Applicants submit herewith a statement on the substance of the telephone interview held 
on March 24, 2009. 

During the interview, Applicant's representative pointed out the difference between the 
claimed invention and the teachings of the prior art. Applicants' representative stated that the 
prior art does not teach writing the defect management information in at least one temporary 
defect management area to at least one defect management area when the optical recording 
medium is to be finalized. The Examiner indicated that the claims appear to be distinguishable 
over the prior art and the Examiner will perform a search to confirm.
