Steve Jobs Exhibit at the USPTO

The USPTO has decided to pay tribute to the late Steve Jobs with an exhibit highlighting the Apple innovator's patents and trademarks. Here is part of the press release:

"In tribute to the tremendous influence of Steve Jobs, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will showcase The Patents and Trademarks of Steve Jobs: Art and Technology that Changed the World. The free exhibit will open to the public on November 16 at the USPTO’s campus in Alexandria, Virginia.

“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.”

Located in the atrium of the Madison Building, the exhibit features more than 300 of the patents that bear the name of the iconic innovator along with many of the trademarks that have given Apple its instantly recognizable identity around the world...

The Jobs exhibit, which runs through January 15, 2012, is free and open to the public, as is the National Inventors Hall of Fame and Museum."
