As a Florida patent lawyer, I make it a point to attend the JPMA annual tradeshow in Orlando, Florida regarding infant and baby products. A number of Florida clients also attend this show and have an interest in emerging concepts like the Safety Bumper Pad. This patented concept was invented by a mother, Terry Lyons, while working out a method that could furnish greater crib safety to her children, as has been referred in an article in www.freepatentauction.com. This product is known to offer greater safety features than most of the standard bumper pads available in the market and prevents potential hazards such as loose pads and ripped ties. The Safety Bumper Pad comprises interlocking outer pad straps that help to get rid of bumper pad ties, resulting in a safer and more reliable product. In addition, the product also features a fitted liner retention sheet, stitched around the entire bottom of the 4-wall bumper pad. This sheet enables a crib

The inventors, Kerri E. Hanis (Chesterfield, MO), Lawrence R. Happ (Mundelein, IL) and Mark Hanis (Chesterfield, MO) have come up with the device that illuminates items like drinking cups, eyeglasses and other household items.

Apart from the sensor, the illumination device consists a top section platform that has a nearly vertical sloped edge for retaining items. The device can receive and store useful household articles […]

Household product patents are an important component of my practice as a Florida patent attorney. Interestingly enough, Calmar, Inc., was involved in litigation with Magic Creations and Loomco companies regarding the use of alleged use of counterfeit products. Both products are claimed to contravene Calmar’s trademarked TS800(TM) trigger sprayers as reported in their official website www.calmar.com. Both the companies charged with infringement have agreed to replace all their currently stocked sprayers with non-infringing products. Claimed by the company to be the world’s best selling trigger sprayer, TS800 is used by many consumer products companies due to its spray performance and congeniality, in addition to adaptability and outstanding design. “Calmar products include important patented features which are critical to the performance, appearance and ease of use for our customers’ products” claims John McKe
