7197684 story Google Patents Displaying Patents 93 Posted by timothy on Sunday November 22, 2009 @04:30PM from the on-the-internet dept. theodp writes "Google has actually managed to patent displaying patents. The USPTO issued US Patent No. D603,866 to six Google inventors for their 'graphical user interface for display screen of a communications terminal.' Among the six inventors is the guy who introduced Google Patents. Ironically, Google Patents can't seem to find the new Google patent for Google Patents."
