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.

“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.”
