Description

A 3D model of U.S. Pat. No. 5,016,559. Cutting edge 1989 bookmark / pen holder technology from the original Thingiverse--the U.S. PTO.

"The combination bookmark and writing instrument holder includes a generally planar marking strip and an integrally molded retaining clip at one end of the marking strip. In the preferred embodiment, the retaining clip includes a pair of generally symmetrical, outwardly jaws that together present a writing instrument retaining channel. The channel includes a writing instrument retaining portion, and an outwardly flared mouth portion for guiding the writing instrument into the retaining portion."

Likewise you'd think U.S. Pat. No. 5,839,168 (http://www.google.com/patents/... would have been obvious in 1998. *DONT_KNOW*

You can patent "anything under the sun that is made by man," but you'd have thought this particular gem would have been obvious in 1989.

I have to say, I'm amazed at what is patentable.
