February 28, 2023, Weekly Utility Patent Insights

Welcome to the 28th of February 2023: A glimpse at what’s new in utility patents! For a change, we got OpenAI to write us a poem on Prolific Inventors and Patents. Here goes:

Patents and Prolific inventors,

Their ideas so creative and clever,

Their discoveries so innovative,

Out of the box, forever endeavor.


Their minds so sharp and so wise,

Their works so brilliant and concise,

A world of possibilities they see,

Which they bring to life with ease.


The inventors and the patents,

A never ending quest,

To make the world a better place,

With their ideas the best.


Inventions that make lives easier,

Creating the most useful of features,

From the lightbulb to the telephone,

The inventors have made history.


Their names will forever be immortalized,

For their hard work and dedication,

They have changed the world and inspired us,

With their ideas and innovation.
