Winstead's IP attorney Kelly Kordzik, served as the lead counsel and patent attorney in reviewing and prosecuting the reissue of the eight year-old patent that claims the world's first use of carbon nanotubes for field emission applications such as flat panel computer and other electronic monitor displays.
According to Kordzik
, the original patent was issued to investors Till Keesman and Hubert Grosse - Wilde, on February 23, 1994.
However, after a thorough review of the language and terminology incorporated within the patent, Yaniv and Kordzik
strategized and advised SI Diamond
that a reissue of the patent could recapture stronger and more focused language that would help the company greatly enhance its carbon nanotube portfolio.
...Kordzik also played a key role in formulating the exclusive license agreement from Keesman, the owner of the patent.
"By receiving a notice of allowance, SI Diamond
now has the opportunity to posses one of the most robust patent portfolios in the carbon nanotube and field emission industries, which will likely by unmatched by anyone," said Kordzik
