Each month, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) is sharing stories of inventions that have made a positive difference and the minds behind them.
The profiles highlight everyday people, both young and old, as well as household names like Jim Henson.
From office supply staples to climate change innovators, PTO’s Journeys of Innovation series traces the inspiring stories of inventors and entrepreneurs from the seed of an idea to its fruition. Each unique story highlights the excitement and challenges faced with bringing big (and small!) ideas to life and the importance of protecting intellectual property in innovation.
NTEU proudly represents PTO trademark attorneys and examiners who play crucial roles in protecting intellectual property rights.
