Leyendecker & Lemire Announces Two New Patents

Vehicle’s air conditioning with the engine off, zipper assembly for warehouse netting are among the new patents 

July 16, 2014

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — Leyendecker & Lemire, LLC, an intellectual property and business law firm serving entrepreneurs, individual inventors, and businesses of all sizes, announces three new patentees whose inventions have been successfully commercialized.

Leyendecker & Lemire represented Mark W.Orr of Arvada, Colo., who invented a special zipper assembly for industrial netting. Netting prevents debris from falling from shelving and damaging concrete flooring or inflicting bodily harm on warehouse workers. Lightweight items, such as boxes and paper can get caught by the net and block views. Traditionally, clearing this debris has been an arduous task: The net must be cut, the debris retrieved, and then the net repaired using twine or string. This process can compromise the integrity of the net over time. The zipper assembly created by Orr helps allevitate this issue. The assemby has a row of eyelets on either side, allowing it to be zip-ties to the net webbing. This zipper opens to allow for the safe retrieval of debris, and then securely zipped closed. The patent was issued on April 22.

Jerome Daniels of Elizabeth, Colo., was issued a patent for his invention of a dual-mode automobile air-conditioning system. Typically a car’s vapor-compression air-conditioner is driven by an engine-mounted pulley system, or a DC motor powered by an electrical source independent of the engine. Only when the motor is engaged does the air conditioning work. Daniels designed an air-conditioning system that can be used when the car is not in operation. The system is driven by one or more thermal electric cooling (TEC) systems, powered by a DC power source and supplemented by a solar energy grid. This patent was also issued on April 22.

“It’s my pleasure to announce these – as well as all of our patentess,” says Founding Partner Kurt Leyendecker. “It takes trust and relationship building with our clients to see patents to issuance. We assist and educate our clients throughout the process, and to do that, there has to be trust between us and the client.”

Leyendecker & Lemire Law Firm Announces New Patentees

A device for archers and bow hunters and a system to secure luggage among new patents represented by Denver-based intellectual property and business law firm 

Nov. 19, 2013

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — Leyendecker & Lemire, LLC, an intellectual property and business law firm providing Intellectual Property (IP) and business-related legal services to entrepreneurs, individual inventors, and businesses of all sizes, announces two new patentees whose inventions have been successfully commercialized.

Leyendecker & Lemire represented Evan Vergin, owner of In-Line Archery, who developed a device for bow hunters that keeps arrows secure in most styles of quivers.  The Nock-Line® prevents arrows from rattling and reduces the possibility of the arrows becoming dislodged from the quiver. For more information, visit the website at inlinearchery.com.

The law firm also represented Jeffrey Robert Thomas, president and founder of Blue Sky Products, LLC, who created a system to secure a piece of luggage on top of a wheeled suitcase or cart.  A cord and handle are attached to the wheeled suitcase and then pulled over the second piece of luggage. The device makes it easier to carry luggage and keeps articles from slipping and sliding.

“Our law firm is pleased to represents innovative clients such as Evan and Jeffrey,” says Founding Partner Kurt Leyendecker. “Their ingenuity has made improvements to the sport of bow hunting, and every day travel. It takes a high level of commitment to turn a novel idea into a useable, commercial product. From the point of conception through to the moment a patent application is filed, it is a good idea to keep a detailed record concerning the development of your invention.”

Leyendecker & Lemire Law Firm Announces New Patentees

Power controlling device and trailer hitch for bicycles are among new patents represented by Leyendecker & Lemire

Oct. 16, 2013

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — Leyendecker & Lemire, LLC, an intellectual property and business law firm providing Intellectual Property (IP) and business-related legal services to entrepreneurs, individual inventors, and businesses of all sizes, announces two new patentees whose inventions have been successfully commercialized.

The firm recently represented patentee Andy Middlemiss. The patented device by Middlemiss is for controlling power, and it comprises a power source input, at least one power contact or outlet, a power control relay, a digital signal input port and a digital signal detector. The device controls power from the power source input to at least one power contact or outlet by operation of the power control relay.

Leyendecker & Lemire also recently represented patentee Stephen Rodgers, whose invention comprises a bicycle trailer hitch for use in securing a bicycle trailer to a bicycle. Unlike prior art trailer hitches, the transfer of most of the load between an associated bicycle and an associated bicycle during use does not pass through the bolt/fastener used to couple the bicycle attachment section to the trailer attachment section. Rather, the majority of the load is transferred through a direct connection between the respective sections. Rodgers is the principal of Weehoo Inc., a privately held company in Golden, Colo. For more information about Weehoo, which offers the patented iGo pedal trailer, visit rideweehoo.com/.

“Our law firm is pleased to announce these inventive patents on behalf of our clients,” says Founding Partner Kurt Leyendecker. “The two most important factors to the success of an invention are first, a novel and good idea for an innovative product or process, and second, a high degree of commitment by the inventor. A very high level of commitment can even turn an idea that perhaps isn’t so great into a successful product or process. So if you have the will, the desire and the fortitude to see the process of bringing a new product to market, your ultimate chances of success increase significantly. The actual invention of a new or improved product or process plays a very small part in a product’s ultimate success.”

Leyendecker & Lemire Law Firm Successfully Resolves “Honest Toddler” Trademark Dispute

Leyendecker & Lemire represents author of the “Honest Toddler” blog with respect to its widely publicized trademark dispute with The Honest Company

Sept. 24, 2013

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — Leyendecker & Lemire, LLC, an intellectual property and business law firm providing Intellectual Property (IP) and business-related legal services to entrepreneurs, individual inventors, and businesses of all sizes, announces the successful resolution of the “Honest Toddler” trademark dispute.

Leyendecker & Lemire represented Bunmi Laditan, author and creator of the Honest Toddler blog, with respect to its widely publicized trademark dispute with The Honest Company, founded by Jessica Alba, a Golden Globe-nominated actress. The Honest Company provides safe, eco-friendly, affordable products for babies and children.

With more than 265,000 followers, the “Honest Toddler” Twitter feed (@honesttoddler) independently created by Laditan turned into a blog at thehonesttoddler.com and a book, “The Honest Toddler: A Child’s Guide to Parenting.” All three outlets—Twitter feed, blog, and book—provide insights for parents via hilarious quips about life from a toddler’s perspective. Laditan does not sell baby products through her blog.

After weeks of negotiations, Leyendecker & Lemire were able to resolve the issue to the satisfaction of both sides.  Upon executing the settlement, the parties released this joint statement: “For the past several weeks, you may have watched an unwanted situation unfold between The Honest Company and The Honest Toddler. We have now arrived at an amicable agreement which protects both of our respective business interests today and in the future. We want to thank our communities for your unwavering support and look forward to moving forward and doing what we each do best.”

“These sorts of issues are becoming more and more common,” says Peter C. Lemire, attorney on the Honest Toddler case. “With the advent of the Internet, people and businesses that once probably would have never come in contact with one another are now all of a sudden bumping into each other online.  Trademarks need to be on every business owner’s radar screen no matter how large or small their venture is. Failure to do so can be devastating. While we were able to get a successful resolution in this case, not all business owners are so fortunate.”

Leyendecker & Lemire Client Awarded Favorable Judgment in Landmark Keyword Advertising and Trademark Infringement Case

District Court rejects trademark infringement, unfair competition claim

August 21, 2013

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — Leyendecker & Lemire, LLC, an intellectual property and business law firm providing Intellectual Property (IP) and business-related legal services to entrepreneurs, individual inventors, and businesses of all sizes, announces that on May 7, 2013, the Federal District Court for the District of Colorado granted a favorable judgment for the firm’s client, in a landmark keyword advertising case involving trademark infringement and unfair competition claims, among others. The case highlights the changing landscape of use of competitors’ trademarks in Google AdWords, website content and online advertising, and the perceived sophistication of today’s internet user.

“What this case and this judgment indicates is that the courts are having to rethink their historical positions on exclusivity of language,” says Leyendecker & Lemire, LLC co-founder Peter Lemire. “The continual evolution of the Internet’s verbal landscape, as well as to what degree a company can ‘own’ keywords and phrases in the 21st century, played into this particular intellectual property case.”

“The online world continually changes,” he adds. “The courts have come to realize that and this judgment indicates that they are beginning to react accordingly.”

The Leyendecker & Lemire client defended in the case utilized competitor names as key words and in some cases utilized the competitor’s name in the ad text.

“This decision indicates the law’s changing attitude concerning the sophistication of online consumers,” Lemire adds. “No longer do the courts view online consumers as sheep that need to be protected from confusion regarding the source of a product when utilizing search engines; they recognize that consumers have grown comfortable with keyword advertising and upon being directed to extraneous results, they merely hit the back button on their browser until they find the product they are looking for.”

A founding member of the law firm of Leyendecker & Lemire, LLC, Lemire previously served as in-house counsel to various companies in the Denver Metro area in industries ranging from high tech dot-coms to strategic investment firms specializing in the purchase and sale of distressed commercial debt. Lemire has advised companies on issues such as general corporate and business law, employment law, mergers and acquisitions, contract drafting and negotiation, software licensing, strategic relationships, copyright, trademark and cyber law. He holds a Bachelor of Science in economics and a Bachelor of Arts in political science from Purdue University, a Juris Doctor from the University of Denver College of Law, and an MBA in finance from The University of Denver Daniels College of Business. Lemire is a Member of the Colorado Bar Association, the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Business Law section, the ABA Cyberspace Law and Internet Law Committees as well as the ABA’s subcommittee on Electronic Commerce.

Leyendecker & Lemire Law Firm Announces Client’s Technology Patent

Solution Dynamics, LLC Patents Centralized Refrigeration System

May 23, 2013

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — Leyendecker & Lemire, LLC, an intellectual property and business law firm providing Intellectual Property (IP) and business-related legal services to entrepreneurs, individual inventors, and businesses of all sizes, announces the firm recently represented patentee Calvin Wohlert of Solution Dynamics, LLC on a patent for a centralized refrigeration system.

Many facilities have their HVAC provided by Rooftop Heating and Cooling Units (RTU’s), which are self-contained units that utilize small air cooled refrigeration systems to provide building air conditioning. These units are easy to install and usually have a lower first cost than more traditional centralized chilled water systems.  The drawback of these units is that they are not as energy efficient, and the maintenance cost is often higher than with centralized systems.  In small facilities these types of units make practical sense; however, larger facilities may have 20 to 50 of these units scattered across their roof with a cumulative cooling capacity in the hundreds of tons.  The Central Direct Expansion (Central DX for short) is an innovative approach which involves the installation of a high efficiency centralized refrigeration system for facilities that have multiple RTU’s.  While RTU’s are often installed as the lowest first cost option, they are not the most energy efficient means of providing facility heating and cooling, and normally have high maintenance costs due to non-serviceable compressors failures.  The conversion of standalone RTUs to a central refrigerant system can have quick paybacks, increased reliability, and significant environmental benefits.

“Central DX is a unique approach to a very common energy inefficiency problem in the commercial building sector,” says Wohlert. “This system takes best practices from the industrial refrigeration sector and applies that to the world of commercial building HVAC to achieve approximately 40 percent to 50 percent energy usage reduction and increased reliability.  It is a win for the facility owners, occupants and the environment.  I am extremely happy with the work done by Leyendecker & Lemire on this patent.”

“Our law firm is pleased to announce this important new energy-saving patent on behalf of our client, Calvin Wohlert,” says Founding Partner Kurt Leyendecker. “His company’s inventions and solutions achieve energy and sustainability goals, and increase profit for other companies.”

Leyendecker & Lemire Law Firm Launches Fundraising Drive for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Team in Training Athlete Peter Lemire to Compete at Loveland Lake to Lake Triathlon to Fundraise for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

March 20, 2013

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — Leyendecker & Lemire, LLC, an intellectual property and business law firm providing Intellectual Property (IP) and business-related legal services to entrepreneurs, individual inventors, and businesses of all sizes, announces that Peter Lemire, Esq. will train and compete in the Loveland Lake to Lake Triathlon on June 22, 2013 to raise money for research into leukemia and lymphoma.

Lemire actively supports the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training, an organization dedicated to funding research for leukemia and lymphoma by inspiring athletes to raise money through participation in endurance sports events. Lemire, training for his third triathlon with the team, has set a goal of raising $1,955.00 before competing in the Olympic distance triathlon in Loveland. The race consists of a .9-mile swim, 30-mile bike ride and a 6.2-mile run.

“At the start of each new season I try to figure out why I do this and why I find raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – something that I find I need to do,” writes Lemire on his fundraising site. “I still come back to the fact that if it was me or one of my family sitting in that doctor’s office receiving the diagnosis or sitting in the hospital receiving chemo, I would have some comfort in knowing that there were hoards of strangers out there doing everything they can to help fight these diseases. In a way, I do this because my kids are healthy, but I know there are those out there who are not, and I cannot in my worst imagination think of what it feels like to watch your child suffer and there isn’t anything you can do about it.”

“Together We Train to Beat Cancer,” states the Team in Training Rocky Mountain Chapter  website: “Created 25 years ago, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training has grown to be the world’s largest and most successful endurance sports charity program. Since 1988, the program has helped more than 540,000 people achieve their dream of completing a marathon, half marathon, triathlon, 100-mile (century) bicycle ride or hike adventure, and those participants have raised a remarkable $1.2 billion.”  For more information about Team in Training visit: http://www.teamintraining.org/rm/.

Lemire is raising money and keeping his contributors apprised of his training progress on his personal fundraising site:http://pages.teamintraining.org/rm/lltltri13/Plemire. He says, “Please help me in this fight. No contribution is too small. Whether you have been affected by this insidious disease or whether your loved ones are perfectly healthy, your donation will help save lives. Your donation is 100 percent tax deductible and is much appreciated.”
