The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) announced today that it has issued the one millionth U.S. design patent on September 26, 2023. The USPTO grants design patents for new, original, and ornamental designs for an article of manufacture. Protecting the way something looks through design patent protection, as opposed to how something works through utility patent protection, is a vital step for many businesses. For more information, please read the USPTO press release.
