Steve Jobs patented a staircase?

Steve Jobs means Apple Computers basically. Think AppleII, Macintosh, PowerBook, iMac, MacBook, iPod, iPad, iPhone. You might not think it, but he did also patent a staircase, a lanyard, and a building exterior.

To coincide with the opening of the brand new Denver Patent & Trademark Office, the Central Library is hosting an exciting exhibit featuring giant iPhones displaying 300 patents issued to Steve Jobs. The exhibit also includes a slide show featuring some of Steve Jobs' trademarks.

The Patents and Trademarks of Steve Jobs: Art and Technology that Changed the World, has been exhibited in Washington, D.C. (U.S. Patent & Trademark Office and the Smithsonian) and Geneva, Switzerland (World Intellectual Property Office) and was brought to Denver by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, Invent Now, Inc., and the Rocky Mountain IP Collective. The exhibit is free and open to the public and will run through late September.

Denver Public Library is a designated Patent & Trademark Resource Center (PTRC), which is housed in Reference Services. Stop by Central Library to check out this great exhibit and learn about the resources and services available through the PTRC.
