The patent system is not only for the protection of huge corporations and their high-tech/cutting edge technologies.
As a dog lover and patent attorney, from time to time in this blog I will highlight patents associated with pets and small inventors.
For example, in 2003, Ms. Lori Huber of Seattle, Washington received US Design Patent No. 475163 on a dog collar. Ms. Huber would go on to get three design patents on dog collar designs.
