Welcome to Patently Apple, a blog that's primarily focused on delivering the very best coverage of Apple's Intellectual Property that published every week. Every Tuesday we report on Apple's Granted Patents and every Thursday we report on Apple's Patent Applications. We also cover many of Apple's patent infringement legal cases under "Patently Legal," and cover most of Apple's trademark filings as they become available publicly in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Hong Kong China.
In 2013 Patently Apple began covering general Apple news on a daily basis that has proven to be very successful with our fan base. Thank you for visiting Patently Apple today and we hope that you'll bookmark our site going forward.
Some have asked what does the Patently Apple stand for. It's represents a drawing from Leonardo da Vinci called the Virtuvian Man. Leonardo da Vinci is a man known for his advanced inventions and innovative thinking. His original drawing was accompanied by notes from the architect Vitruvius. Our logo used to be much larger, capturing part of the torso and extended arms. It was further reduced to it's current logo form in and around 2014 / 2015. Below is the full graphic our logo represents.
