Rockin’ (Design) Patent — Yamaha Corporation’s “Electronic Keyboard”

Figure 1 of this design patent “is a perspective view of the front, top and right side of an electronic keyboard”
  • Rockin’ (Design) Patent: US Design Patent No. D761,348
  • Filed: 14 April 2015
  • In the name of: Yamaha Corporation
  • Title: Electronic Keyboard
  • What’s claimed: “The ornamental design for an electronic keyboard, as shown and described.”
  • Why this (design) patent rocks:
  • Unlike utility patents, design patents (also called “registered designs”) protect the way all or part of a product looks rather than how it works. This is why the claim here refers to the “ornamental design” for an electronic keyboard “as shown”.
