  • Creator Stamp can turn a new page in IP filing history

    Posted on February 5th, 2016 Mr. Leo Siemann No comments

     

    Just imagine filing your Intellectual Property rights from your desktop, tab or mobile device in few minutes. How much easier would that make a life of all creative people? Honestly, miles and days! Well, this is not just a dream any more but about to happen as a company called Creator Stamp  will launch its low cost web app soon  : )

    Yes, It has been a while since none dare not to touch this holy old cow’ till last autumn when Rio based estonian designer & photographer Martin Lazarev had enough of this old system and came up with a new alternative concept of  ”Inventors Proof Signature”Being very much in a need of such solution himself almost every single day he just invented  more convinient way for saving up his creative works.

    Martin contacted me soon after to ask my advice on his cracking idea and if I would join with him. As I already had been thinking of release my web app on something similar I understood immediately that we are on the same road. So I took a little time out to think about it and replied to him; “Lets do it, but with a twist or broader approach to all creators like copywrighters, musicians, scientists, architects, artists and all the others who are also in need of something like this before they even talk to their workmates or investors or publish their works!” And so we started the company from this sparkle last Autumn.

    The method of  ”Creator Stamp” has been filed still as an old school’ patent but through that something new will emerge very soon. Actually, it would not replace the old complicated and rather expensive patent system but will give an alternative way to file your IP and also to prove it in disputes if needed, using your ID card or e-residency via encrypted server or Blockchain technology. There are some companies out there already who do file saving on blockchain already, but as far we know, nobody has done it via state proved e-residency or ID card system yet and Creator Stamp is just about to do that.

    In order to get a top-notch service we are working closely with governmental institutions, e-Residency Team, Patent Office and with one of the best web developing companies in Estonia.

  • My Story

    Yeah, it will be 5 years soon from the day I launched my homepage while I was living with my lovely wife & daughter Charlotte in the UK. It all happened in a rocky seaside town called Torquay which is the heart of the English Riviera , well known by its history and nightlife. Honestly this place is full of legends from the past like Charles Darwin, Agatha Christie, Isaac Singer, I.K. Brunel, Thomas Newcomen and many others. I must admit it is the most inspirational place on the planet Earth I ever lived in my entire life.

    As many of yours, so did my parents divorce which I found hard to overcome. But life went on & so did I. After passing Oisu Primary School with flying colours I graduated Kuusalu High School in 1992 and then Tallinn Medical College in 1996 as Military Assistant Doctor. I practised in various hospitals & military field for few years before I left for the UK where I lived 12 wonderful years in total. Now, England really got me as I experienced & learned a lot in those years. I learned how to play tennis & golf, I studied sports medicine, I worked, I got married & we made a business. Also I was a keen member of local poetry club & writers club at St.Marychurch Torquay. After graduating as a Sports-Massage Therapist at South Devon College in 2001, I had a luck to work with some of the finest sportsman in the World. My massage clients included 4 World champions & 2 Olympic gold medalists. But that wasn’t my final call as yet as you might of thought …

  • So, why I am doing this ?

    Posted on October 1st, 2010 Mr. Leo Siemann No comments

    Quite a few people have asked me how did I come to the idea to make the “Estonian Inventor”. Well, my story is simple. I was looking for help to file my first invention in Estonia in 2004. I got some free expert advise from Estonian Patent Office at the time and that was good. But for a person who never studied engineering or law , this info was pretty tough to bite through. So I struggled and worked on this for the next 2 years before I was able to file my first patent, without paying anything to patent attorneys.  I was able to file the same patent in the UK and USA year later. It all made me wonder why there is no simple approach or web page out there to help common people with little funds like me. As all these and many other thoughts about inventing and IP were spinning in my head every single day I was looking for the place where I could possibly leave them. I made some comments in newspapers now and then, but that didn’t do the job. Finally I found blogging as the way out and I must admit it’s been working ever since ! I was surely inspired by “American Inventor” , which gave me the idea for my blog name. Luckily I did already knew what to do with it …

    My aim today is to help inventors and entrepreneurs around the World to find an easy access to free IP & patent information. I also recommend you to contact your patent office and patent attorney if you have funds available. But if you  have not, then do not be afraid – YOU CAN DO IT YOURSELF ! For that just browse the top banner and sidebar of my blog and you can find out much more : )

    Another idea of my webpage is to introduce Estonian made inventions and the latest technologies that I notice on my journey.

    “Estonian Inventor” was established on the 20th March 2009 and has attracted nearly 4000 unique visitors from over 90 countries to date. The latest entry has just come from Vietnam this morning : )

    Today I represent  ’Estonian Inventors Association’ in the UK and also our little country at the British Innovation Expo in London 2010.

  • IP rights in Your business and beyond.

    Posted on July 16th, 2009 Mr. Leo Siemann 1 comment

    As an entrepreneur I would like to keep my lines simple and effective.  You probably understand how important it is to own the premises and the land where your company is located. You may also sell these two and use this capital to expand your business or save it from collapsing as many companies have to face today. You can also franchise your rights but in the long run it would not make you great as someone else can always take a stake away from your hard earned profits. Intellectual Property rights are even more important for your venture. So you really have to make sure that your IP rights belong to you ! I mean by that any trademarks, copyrights, franchises, patents and domain names which are linked to your company’s identity should be legally protected by using Patent Office services for instance. Therefore I have given simple explanations about these forms of IP in my blog top banner. As we take action in these matters we can be new brand-founders, sell our companies for a good money or even heritage these rights to our children.  Doing so our legacy can live long after we have gone …
