Rockin’ (Design) Patent – Devialet’s “Loudspeaker”

Patents Rock - Loudspeaker

Figure 1 of this design patent (see above) “is a perspective view taken from the top, front, and right side of the loudspeaker”

  • Rockin’ (Design) Patent: US Design Patent No. D752,021
  • Filed: 25 April 2014
  • In the name of: Devialet
  • Title: Loudspeaker
  • What’s claimed: “The ornamental design for a loudspeaker, 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 loudspeaker “as shown”.
    • This design patent seems to relate to Devialet’s Phantom speaker, which Devialet claim on their website is “the best wireless speaker in the world” (see here)
