For an article about patents today, Wired ran an image of the exhibits at the US Patent and Trademarks Office Museum , a design conceived by Partner Keith Helmetag . Interestingly, Keith actually holds a registered patent on the unique, modular design of the exhibit itself, along with David G. Fink, the President/CEO of the National Inventors Hall of Fame.
