We’re the creators of #CreepyIP, a celebration of weird and spooky patents and trademarks, AMA!
Every year since 2011, the United State Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has shared intellectual property (IP) found in the deepest and darkest corners of our 200+ year old archives. This Halloween, join our social media team to talk all about #CreepyIP -- from how it got started, to the magic of searching for old patents and trademarks, to what invention artwork gives us the heebie jeebies.
The late Laura Larrimore – senior digital strategist

Send us your queries! We'll start answering questions at 9:30am ET.
UPDATE: Bats all, folks! Thanks so much for all your questions today, and have a safe and happy Halloween.
