googleOn March 7, 2006 Google Inc. filed for a design patent for its home page.  The patent issued on September 1, 2009 as U.S. Pat. No. D599,732.   There are ten (10) listed inventors on the patent. 

A design patent protects the ornamental design of an article of manufacture.  Google’s patent covers the ornamental design for a graphical user interface for a display screen of a communications terminal.   The U.S. Patent Office must have considered this design new and nonobvious over the prior art.
