Rockin’ (Design) Patent – Michael Alan Fisher’s “Guitar Pedal”

Patents Rock - Guitar Pedal

The above Figure from this patent is a perspective view showing the design of the guitar pedal

  • Rockin’ (Design) Patent: US Design Patent No. D761,349
  • Filed: 12 July 2016
  • In the name of: Michael Alan Fisher
  • Title: Guitar Pedal
  • What’s claimed: “The ornamental design for a guitar pedal, 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 the guitar pedal “as shown”.
    • This design seems to relate to the Enigma X16 pedal by Mass Flux Instruments (see their Facebook page here)
