USPTO Exhibit on Steve Jobs Opens at Smithsonian

Blog by Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the USPTO David Kappos

If you missed our wonderful exhibit—The Patents and Trademarks of Steve Jobs: Art and Technology that Changed the World—while it was on display several months ago here at the USPTO campus, you now have another chance. This exhibit, which commemorates the far-reaching impact of Steve Jobs’ innovation on our daily lives, opens today at the Smithsonian Institution. Head to the concourse of the Smithsonian’s Ripley Center, and you’ll see displays of the more than 300 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. You’ll gain insights into the visionary commitment Jobs gave to each of the products and designs he influenced during his time with Apple, the company he co-founded at the age of 21 with his friend and fellow computer enthusiast Steve Wozniak. You might also be interested to know that on May 2nd, Jobs was inducted posthumously into the National Inventors Hall of Fame at a dinner held in the Smithsonian American Art Museum and Portrait Gallery, the historic home of the USPTO. The Patents and Trademarks of Steve Jobs: Art and Technology that Changed the World runs through July 8th.
