James D.

James Deirmendjian

My education and work experience can only be described as eclectic. It's been my good fortune in my time so far as a patent agent to have been given free reign to experiment with novel prosecution strategies, and to make higher-level judgment calls on difficult cases, the sorts of which would normally be reserved for managing partners. My approach to patents includes the deployment of strong analytical, writing and persuasive skills, a keen and general understanding of a wide breadth of applied sciences, and a strong desire to self-educate in the technical, legal and scientific nuances that often attend to each unique case.

Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Columbus Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Columbus patent attorneys & lawyers represent individuals and businesses throughout the world with domestic and foreign patent preparation and prosecution matters. They have extensive experience handling applications from nearly every sector of technology, including biotechnology, computer hardware and software, communication networks, internet systems and methods, automotive, medical equipment, construction technology, consumer electronics, and clean technology research and development.

Our patent attorneys are of the most highly trained in the industry, requiring a scientific background, and passing a second level of testing known as the Patent Bar Examination. Thousands of patents are submitted to the patent office every day and a patent committee reviews each patent for its validity. The process requires that correctly drafted documentation present a clear case for the novelty of the invention, which is best made by a patent attorney with a higher education background in your industry.

Our Columbus patent attorneys & lawyers can help you file a provisional patent, which lasts for 1-year and allows you to immediately begin using/manufacturing your invention with the confidence that your idea is protected. These types of patents are great if you think your idea will change a lot over the next year before you file a (non-provisional) patent. These patents are easier to obtain and are less expensive but you should have a patent lawyer review your provisional patent application to insure that you are meeting your objectives when you file your patent.

Patent Cooperation Treaty: What Is It?

The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) offers patent protection for inventions in over 150 nations around the world with just one international patent application. Filing with the PCT is an important part of how to patent an idea since it helps inventors seek international patent protection for their inventions and intellectual property. Inventors can file an international patent application with one or more Contracting States. If they receive approval, they will have patent protection in several countries at the same time.

Patent Assignment Database

  • 8 min read

What Is the Patent Assignment Database?

The Patent Assignment Database has all recorded patent information from August 1980 until now. Any time someone adds information to one of the patent records, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) adds it to the database. However, it doesn't check to make sure that the new information is correct.

How Do Patent Assignments Work?

Assignments offer flexibility. Different people can acquire different rights to a patent. One person could have the patent assignment, but a prior owner could keep a license to use the technology for free.

An interested party could only look at these documents at the USPTO. They're not available online. The best practice is for the owner of a patent to show all current and previous assignments. This is a chain of title that starts with the inventor. The most recent entry shou

What Is an Ornamental Design Patent?

An ornamental design patent protects the design of a manufactured object. It is different from a utility patent. A utility patent protects the function and operation of an item. An ornamental design patent only covers the appearance of the product.

"Ornamental" in this case means the visual appearance of a product. This is further explained in the Manual of Patent Examination Procedure. It's defined as "the appearance presented by the article which creates an impression through the eye upon the mind of the observer."

It's important to note the differences between the two

Inequitable Conduct

What Is Inequitable Conduct?

Inequitable conduct is a plea defense for infringement lawsuits. The defendant claims the patent holder intentionally misinformed, misled, or withheld important information from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to get a bad patent. If the court rules in favor of this defense, it can void the patent in question.

How Does the Inequitable Conduct Defense Work?

Patents are supposed to encourage people to innovate and invent. They are public information, and in exchange for showing how an invention works, the inventor gets monopoly power for several years. However, many people try to abuse the patent system by getting patents that are too vague or describe inventions that already exist. They can then try to use these patents to get money fr

Patent Classification Search

What is a Patent Classification Search

A patent classification search is a type of patent search done by searching patent classification schemes in patent databases. Patent applications are classified into classification schemes based on their technical content. These patent applications are assigned classifying symbols or codes that make it easier to search for other patents.

By searching with classification symbols, you are able to do a more precise search of existing patents than if you just searched using keywords. Most systems separate patents into classes, known as the original references, and then smaller subclasses. All of these classes organize patents according to their function, composition, manufac
