Inventors and Patents From the City of Lincolnshire
The City of Lincolnshire is home to nine patents awarded last month. The longest time was 1,330 days between the filing date of a patent application and the grant date. In Lincolnshire, a patent for Zebra Technologies Corporation was approved on July 5, 2019. While it is important to obtain a patent for an invention, it does not necessarily guarantee success. In fact, roughly half of all patents end up expired because of costs.
Simon Sturtevant was a speculator
The City of Lincolnshire had a history of speculators, some of whom became wealthy and others failed. Simon Sturtevant was one of them. He acted on a number of inventions, mainly relating to clocks. For example, he invented a chronometric governor that allowed watchmakers to set and stop the clocks in real time. In addition, he invented anastatic printing, which never became a profit.
Abbott Molecular has been assigned a patent
It is important to note that this agreement does not grant Idera any exclusive rights to any of the inventions described in the patent. Instead, Idera and Abbott are granting each other non-exclusive licenses, and they may grant sublicenses to Affiliates and Third Party research collaborators under confidentiality agreements. These licenses relate to the technology underlying the inventions.
During the term of the patent, each party is required to notify the other of any subsequent filing or extension of the patent. This is to protect both companies’ rights. Moreover, the parties should meet promptly to discuss the joint invention and decide whether to seek patent protection for it. In such a case, Idera is to file the Joint Patent Right application and shall provide Abbott with a copy of the patent application.
The patent relates to the m2000, Abbott’s proprietary real-time PCR processing workstation. The parties must edit their publications to ensure that the disclosure does not contain proprietary business information or trade secrets. They must also acknowledge their contribution in the publications. Further, they must be able to cite their respective patents without infringing the other party’s intellectual property rights.
The patent allows Abbott to develop and commercialize Diagnostic Tests for a period of 15 years. The Agreement specifies the countries in which Abbott must supply the Diagnostic Test. Abbott agrees to maintain a safety stock for the Diagnostic Test in such countries. In case of shortages, the parties should discuss commercial resolutions promptly.
Milwaukee Electric Tool
With over a thousand employees in several countries, the Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation is a global leader in power tools. The company offers more than 500 different tools and accessories to professional and home users, and utilizes state-of-the-art technologies and manufacturing techniques. Its founders are proud of their Lincolnshire roots and have been recognized for their contributions to manufacturing and innovation.
In 1922, Albert F. Siebert formed the A.H. Petersen Company, but the company closed in 1923 due to a devastating fire. The recession hit the company hard at the time, and Siebert purchased the remaining assets at an auction. Despite the loss of his own company, Siebert continued to work on the company and eventually created the Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation.
In the 1930s, Milwaukee introduced a portable electric drill that quickly became one of the most popular tools. Its design was lightweight and easy to convert from a 1/4-inch to a 3/4-inch drill. It quickly won over consumers and was followed by a lighter, shorter unit designed for precision drilling.
The company’s growth continued in the post-World War II years, as the company developed more powerful tools for professional use. In 1949, Milwaukee’s sander/grinders were updated to incorporate a spring clutch to prevent backlash and provide smoother operation. This technology was later added to Milwaukee’s circular saw line. Throughout the years, Milwaukee engineers continued to innovate their products, and in 1951, they introduced a new sander/grinder with dustproof switches.
The company also continued to expand throughout the 1960s and 1970s. In 1965, Milwaukee built a new manufacturing facility in Brookfield, Wis. This expansion resulted in an increase in product lines and manufacturing facilities.
