The EP-O’-Lantern

The European Patent Office (EPO) is a central cog in the intellectual property community, and according to the EPO website, it “offers inventors a uniform application procedure which enables them to seek patent protection in up to 40 European countries.”  The EPO contributes a wide range of valuable search and classification tools for both EP and international patent documents:

These contributions are just scratching the surface of the deep wealth of knowledge and resources which the EPO has contributed to the patent search field.  As a small tribute to this fantastic organization, I’d like to create a Jack-o’-lantern in its honor (last year the USPTO got its own David Kapp-o’-lantern).

The easiest way to create an EP-O’-Lantern is to simply carve the EPO logo…

…onto the face of a pumpkin:

After the jump, see the EP-O’-Lantern lit up for Halloween night!
