UI patents

Hello everyone!

I have been mining the web via google for information about u.s.
patents granted for (graphical) user interfaces.

Does anyone have any knowledge of information repositories of ui
patents, critical reviews of these patents that would maybe

that might summarize gui patents somehow??

Best regards,

Ville Tikkanen
