I use FPO already for drilling into how things really work, and now I'm also using it to create plaque icons for all my patents, which I can send to friends and family, and post on my company website.
BALTIMORE, Md. (PRWEB) October 7, 2008
Sponsored by the recently released Universal movie Flash of Genius, a Patent Plaque can be provisioned from any patent page in the FPO database by clicking on the "Plaque It!" link.
Flash of Genius tells the tale of an inventor whose fight to receive recognition for his ingenuity would come at a heavy price. Determined engineer Robert Kearns (played by Greg Kinnear) refused to be silenced as he took on the auto industry in a battle that nobody thought he could win.
The first Patent Plaque was created on October 6th at 1:34 am EST, by Mark Gottlieb of Fairfax Station, Virginia. "I plaqued my invention 'Remote Vehicle Starter for a Standard Transmission Vehicle' in about 5 seconds, off one of the FPO patent pages that bears my name," said Gottlieb. "I use FPO already for drilling into how things really work, and now I'm also using it to create plaque icons for all my patents, which I can send to friends and family, and post on my company website."
Gottlieb's invention (U.S. Patent #5656868; http://www.freepatentsonline.com/5656868.html) goes by the name Ready Remote®, and more than a million units have been sold by Vista, CA-based DesignTech.
The FPO database has 8,812,656 patents from 4,123,399 inventors, the most comprehensive knowledge compendium of everything under the sun made by man. FPO's new blog, HONORINGTHEINVENTOR.COM highlights different key inventors and their patents each week.
