Patents recently issued for clients of Taylor IP:
U.S. Patent No. 9,614,199, entitled “Feedthrough”, issued on April 4, 2017, is directed to a feedthrough, for example through a part of a housing, such as a battery housing, is, for example, made of a metal, such as a light alloy, for example aluminum, an aluminum alloy, AlSiC, magnesium, a magnesium alloy, titanium, a titanium alloy, steel, stainless steel or high-grade steel. The housing part has at least one opening through which at least one conductor having a cross-section is guided in a glass or glass ceramic material. The conductor has at least two sections, a first section having a first, substantially round, for example a circular, cross section having a diameter in the region of the feedthrough through the glass or glass ceramic material, and a second section having a second, substantially non-round, for example a substantially rectangular cross-section, and the conductor is formed in one piece.
U.S. Patent No. 9,614,336, entitled “Pop-up desktop receptacle”, issued on April 4, 2017, is directed to a desktop receptacle includes: a housing having a top surface with a receptacle opening formed therein; an electrical receptacle including at least one electrical port and pivotally mounted within the housing adjacent to the receptacle opening, the electrical receptacle having a recessed position where the at least one electrical port is below the top surface of the housing and an exposed position where the at least one electrical port is at least partially exposed above the top surface; and a gas spring connected to the electrical receptacle so as to bias the electrical receptacle toward the exposed position.
U.S. Patent No. 9,616,205, entitled “Drug delivery implants”, issued on April 11, 2017, is directed to an orthopedic implant system includes an orthopedic implant implantable at a selected location within a corporeal body and configured for delivering at least one therapeutic agent to the corporeal body, the implant defining a reservoir and a plurality of channels, the reservoir configured for receiving the at least one therapeutic agent, the plurality of channels configured for conveying the at least one therapeutic agent from the reservoir to a treatment site relative to the corporeal body, the implant being at least one of an internal fixation device and a porous device.
U.S. Patent No. 9,616,518, entitled “Feed-through”, issued on April 11, 2017, is directed to a feed-through, in particular a feed-through which passes through part of a housing, in particular a battery housing, for example made of metal, in particular light metal, for example aluminum, an aluminum alloy, AlSiC, magnesium, an magnesium alloy, titanium, a titanium alloy, steel, stainless steel or high-grade steel. The housing part has at least one opening through which at least one conductor, in particular an essentially pin-shaped conductor, embedded in a glass or glass ceramic material, is guided. The base body is, for example, an essentially annular-shaped base body.
U.S. Patent No. 9,617,129, entitled “Hydraulic pumping cylinder and method of pumping hydraulic fluid”, issued on April 11, 2017, is directed to a hydraulic jack includes a frame and a pump connected to the frame. The pump is connected to the frame. The pump includes a rod, a housing, and a piston, with hydraulic fluid being in the housing. The rod has a cross-sectional area and has a longitudinal axis. The housing has an end through which the rod slides. The housing has an interior open cross-sectional area in a direction normal to the longitudinal axis, and the housing has an interior wall. The piston is coupled to the rod. The piston establishes a rod side chamber and a piston side chamber within the housing. The piston has a cross-sectional area, which is smaller than the cross-sectional area of the housing thereby allowing a portion of the hydraulic fluid to flow between said piston and said interior wall to and from the rod side chamber and the piston side chamber when the piston is moved in the housing.
U.S. Patent No. 9,617,934, entitled “Method for torque control of an internal combustion engine, and internal combustion engine”, issued on April 11, 2017, is directed to a method for torque control of an internal combustion engine includes a pressure sensor that is associated with at least one, but at the most two cylinders of the internal combustion engine, whereby an cylinder internal pressure for the cylinder associated with the pressure sensor is detected. The method carries out an adjustment of injection characteristics for the injectors allocated to the individual cylinders of the internal combustion engine by way of a method which is independent from the detected cylinder pressure. A torque control for the internal combustion engine is performed based on the detected cylinder pressure.

Please note that not all patents which have been prepared by Taylor IP actually issue with Taylor IP being listed as the responsible law firm/attorneys. For example, some of the larger companies that are represented by Taylor IP prefer to list their inhouse personnel as the responsible legal professionals for their issued patents. Thus, many patents that are prepared and/or prosecuted by Taylor IP do not appear with our name on the face of the patent.
Taylor IP has several patent attorneys with diverse and strong technical backgrounds. Each patent attorney at Taylor IP has a specific technical background and a law degree, and most have industry experience in their respective technical field. For example, our patent attorneys have technical backgrounds in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering and chemical engineering.
