This is an extraordinary success for the USPTO (the United States Patent and Trademark Office).

He also reviles that this 10 millionth patent will be first issued with a new patent cover design, which is already unveiled in March at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. He said that cover designed was created by a team of USPTO graphic designers including Rick Heddleston, Teresa Verigan, and led by Jeff Isaacs. This new cover design revels both, how far we have come and the new limits we have yet to discover.
Further, Andrei Iancu adding in his blog “each patent blooms from the imagination, wisdom, and willpower that a creator or a team of creators have capitalized in order to bring ideas to execution. Our strong IP system has provided 10 million patents value of innovation representing trillions of dollars added to the international economy”.
