Who I Am and What Makes Me Different
I’m John Lindsay, a patent attorney with experience in technology, business, and law for client matters. I’m an engineer turned intellectual property attorney, having a technical background in computer science, electronics, and chemistry. As a software guy, I worked in environments ranging from IBM to startups, with my tech journey starting with the Commodore 64, moving to programming languages such as Visual Basic and Java, and more recently Android development for my patent pending vehicular traffic smoothing software system. In chemistry, I earned a Bachelors of Science. In electronics, my journey includes working with embedded platform work and my patent pending work on a vehicle to vehicle signaling system. In business, my background includes project management and a prior startup. My journey in technology, law, and business should help you with your journey to protect and monetize your intellectual property.
I’m a registered patent attorney and have drafted United States and international patent applications have applied my legal and technical expertise for clients in software, business methods, electronics, firmware, chemical syntheses, medical devices, and consumer product fields. Representative patent draftings include interactive virtual reality exercise software, natural language processing systems, an electrical connector, high throughput quadrature amplitude modulation, hydrogen fuel cell systems, a golf club weighting system, a travel pillow, thermodynamically efficient light hydrocarbon synthesis, and biodegradable plastics.
I’ve also filed and prosecuted trademark applications for those launching brand names. Additionally, I’ve drafted transfer and license agreements to support the monetization of intellectual property. My experience also includes defending clients’ intellectual property rights at the United States Patent & Trademark Office, domain name arbitrations, and the court room. I’ve counseled a variety of businesses with their intellectual property matters and frequently counsel and present on patent, copyright, trademark, technology, and commercialization issues. Because life isn’t all about law and technology, I also enjoy mountain biking.
