It has been around since 2006, and after five years, the GorillaPod has finally acquired its own patent. The US Patent Office has issued Utility Patent No. 7,891,615 to JOBY, maker of the iconic GorillaPod line of products, on February 22, 2011.

“Our ball and socket technology has long been recognized as innovative and unique,” says JOBY CEO Forrest Baringer-Jones. “We are honored that the US Patent Office has recognized our efforts with a patent that confirms the novelty of the GorillaPod line.”

The patent joins JOBY’s existing portfolio of domestic and international intellectual property protection, including trademarks, trade dress, and design patents. Known for unique products, JOBY has attracted copycats and has successfully enforced its intellectual property rights both in and out of court in the US, Canada and Australia.
