Leyendecker & Lemire, LLC
9137 East Mineral Circle
Suite 280
Centennial, CO 80112

We are also switching over to a new main number of (303) 768-0123, however the (303) 768-0650 number will still work as well. Kurt’s, Jackies and my direct numbers will stay the same, as well as the fax number for the ime being. Our phone system will be in flux for a few days as we migrate over to our new provider so please bear with us, but we plan to be fully up and running by Friday, November 3rd.

Thanks for your patience and continued support.

Post Your Comments!

During this time we also received a number of SPAM comments that really had nothing to do with our posts but were rather a form of marketing for someone else’s blog.

Anyhow, because of these occurrences, we disabled comment posting. In the past several months, I have received unpublished comments in my email that I wish had been published on the Blog itself.

So I am turning the comments option back on and hopefully I will be able to leave it on this time. I encourage you to agree or disagree with us if you would like; just do not leave any comments that could be libelous or slanderous to us, or even more so, anyone else.

MARK YOUR CALENDERS!

On Wednesday January 11, 10-12AM MST, I will be heard live across the nation on the Tom Martino Troubleshooter radio show to discuss inventions, patents and other intellectual property. And if you have questions you would like Tom and I to answer, feel free to call in. For those of you that are not familiar with Tom Martino and the Troubleshooter show, I suggest you reference the Troubleshooter website. If you are in Denver or Colorado, you likely know who Tom Martino is and you have probably formed an opinion of him. To the rest of the Nation he is a relatively new radio personality: the show went National 4-5 years ago (I believe) and can be heard in most markets.

The format of his long running and very popular consumer help show has listeners call in with their complaints. Tom with the help of his staff and experts attempt to resolve the problems usually with great success. Additionally, Tom, a very successful entrepreneur, prides himself in helping others with sage advice concerning the word of business. Of course, my summary really does not do the show justice. You will just have to listen.

In addition to the radio show, Tom has regular features on as a consumer reporter on the Denver edition of FoxNews. Further, the Troubleshooter network provides a referral list of screened merchants and service providers that agree to abide by a basic code of ethics in dealing with customers and clients. The list can be found at Referrallist.com.

I have been Tom’s intellectual property law expert since joining the referral list in 2003. I have been on the radio show in numerous short segments over the last 2.5 years helping callers with their specific patent, trademark and copyright problems. This next Wednesday will be the first time I will be on the national show for an extended period of time to take calls specifically concerning intellectual property matters (I did appear on a Sunday local version of the show 1.5 years ago).

What will we talk about? I don’t know exactly as it will depend on callers and the host’s guidance (I suspect the host will be Tom but it could be his first lieutenant, Chris Kane, who is the regular substitute host). But I would be shocked if the topic of Invention Promotion Companies does not come up. If you have read this blog, and the firm Web Site, you know my feelings about them. No matter what happens, if you are interested in the topic of inventing and entrepreneurship, you will enjoy yourself.

I hope you get a chance to listen. Click Here for an Affiliate Radio Station nearest you. And remember to drop me and email and tell me how I did!

New Look and RSS Feed!

Orginally Posted 1/5/06 

Well we have adopted a new look – not all together willingly. We have been experiencing issues with the blog and the sidebar placing itself at the bottom of the page when I am trying to post the second installment of three chords and the truth. In an attempt to remedy it we applied a new template to the blog. It did not help the problem, but we didn’t feel like changing the template – so blue is the new color!

On a more positive note, we have added a RSS feed so if you subscribe to news groups on Yahoo or Google you can basically be notified when we have new material on the blog and you won’t have to check it out on a daily basis to see if there is new material(at least that’s our understanding of the whole thing!). Anyway, we have attempted to set the feed to only give you the first paragraph or so (we know we can be a bit long winded) just in case you are receiving the feed on a portable device. If the feed seems to be downloading the whole article – let us know and we will attempt to fix it so your PDA’s don’t get clogged up. Who knows, maybe next we will do podcasts – that should be interesting!

Client Spotlight #3

Tactical Video Solutions is the producer of video camera that mounts on the end of a semi-automatic pistol’s magazine, and feeds video to a small LCD screen that is typically mounted on the user’s wrist.

SWAT and other law enforcement personal can use the camera to see around blind corners expossing only their firearm and perhaps their hand. Some versions of the system include infrared illumination to permit the officer to see in the dark.

Yuriy Umanskiy, one of the camera’s inventors recently won the INVENTOR OF THE YEAR award from the Divinci Institute as discussed in this Rocky Mountain New Article. Congratutlations, Yuriy!

The product has also been featured on the local WB2 news and Channel 4 news as can be seen on their distributor’s site (Tac-Arts, LLC) under News, Video & Stuff.

We prepared the patent application for the camera system and formed the company, Tactical Video Solutions. Further, we drafted and negotiated the company’s distributor agreement.

You can also check out the camera at Tactical Video Solution’s website.

Client Spotlight #2

The title of this entry, “Client Spotlight”, is particularly appropriate for this client, Camerabright!, Inc.

The company manufactures a unique LED light that fits into the tripod mount of a camera. The light serves several purposes: (1) it can be used to illuminate a scene to facilitate video capture using a digital camera or a camcorder; (2) it can be used in place of the flash when taking portraits to help minimize or eliminate the occurrence of redeye that is common with strobe flashes; and (3) it can be used with macro photography where a high powered strobe flash would washout details of the subject.

The product is Patent Pending and we expect that a Patent will issue sometime in 2006. The company is also in the process of obtaining several Trademarks. Furthermore, the company is growing rapidly and is working on new lighting solutions particularly advantageous to digital photography.
