US Patent and Trademark Office Exhibit Honours 300+ Steve Jobs Patents
A new exhibit has sprung up to honour the inventions of Steve Jobs in Alexandria, Virginia. The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) unveiled 30 massive iPhone-like models showcasing 300+ patents that lists Jobs as the inventor or co-inventor. It’s like a walk down memory lane for Apple aficionados.
“This exhibit commemorates the far-reaching impact of Steve Jobs’ entrepreneurship and innovation on our daily lives,” said Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the USPTO David Kappos. “His patents and trademarks provide a striking example of the importance intellectual property plays in the global marketplace.”
The exhibit, located in the atrium of the Madison Building, was created by the non-profit Invent Now, Inc., that also runs the National Inventors Hall of Fame and Museum, at the USPTO campus. The free patent exhibit will be on display until January 15, 2012.
