Google patented “Graphical User Interface” from Dirson notes that Google was granted a patent today on its “graphical user interface” that most of us would call its search results page. Perhaps that might stop some of the copying going on! Seriously, I can’t find enough about the patent to see how extensive it might be or what exactly it covers. You’ll find the actual filing here. Bill Slawski might be along in a bit to dig deeper into the patent.
Here are the three screenshots from the filing:

Postscript, from Bill Slawski:

While a utility patent protects the way that something may be used and how it works, a design patent protects the way that it looks. The US Patent and Trademark Office describe the protection under that type of patent more fully in their Design Patent FAQ

Google had four other design patents granted this year before this newest design patent.
