Stuart M. Goldstein, partner and founding shareholder of the law firm of Hollstein Keating Cattell Johnson & Goldstein PC, has been successful in obtaining the issuance of U.S. Patent No. 7,798,099 from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a Modular Bird Feeder System that features an innovative design to virtually eliminate the problems associated with conventional bird feeders. Interchangeable modular bird feeder components on the EFFORT-LESS BIRDFEEDERTM - including a feed filling funnel, upper and lower feed trays, 10 cup bird feed tube, and a squirrel guard - are slideably mounted on a vertical standing pole. Removing the adjustable locking pin allows for easy control of the unit as it slides from its bird feeding position to a convenient, easy refilling position on the pole.
The benefits of these features to the user - bird watchers young and old - are many. The fact that the feeder slides up and down the center pole eliminates the need to reach and bend to re-fill and clean. The unique funnel element is accessible from a standing position, making for a neater, more efficient way to fill the feed tube. Upper and lower feed trays makes the EFFORT-LESS BIRDFEEDERTM bird friendly. The two different size trays attract a wider variety of wild birds, from cardinals and blue jays to chickadees, sparrows, finches, and ground doves, to name a few. The larger tray catches the seeds that fall from the smaller tray above preventing seed waste. Both trays have drainage holes to prevent the seeds from getting moldy. As bird enthusiasts know, this means healthier birds. The well-designed squirrel guard prevents squirrels from climbing up to get to the feed. The EFFORT-LESS BIRDFEEDERTM is lightweight and durable, with a free-standing base for easy relocation. The slideable feature allows for easy and quick clean up, just a rinse from a garden hose.
Accessible to anyone who enjoys bird watching. both young and old, the EFFORT-LESS BIRDFEEDERTM is, as its marketing proudly states, 'incredibly easy to fill and maintain.'
The Modular Bird Feeder System was developed by Zenith Innovation, LLC, of Delran, New Jersey. It is dedicated to creating high-quality, innovative products that result in less work and more fun. Zenith Innovation, LLC, is headed by Peter S. Vosbikian, an inventor and entrepreneur with over 41 years in the consumer products business. Peter knew there had to be a better way to feed wild birds, so he devised an efficient and user-friendly system that enabled the bird feeder to slide up and down a center pole. As he explains, "when the feeder is in the down position, it exposes the opening at the top of the feed tube and makes re-filling 'effortless,' hence, the name of the product."

It is through Mr. Goldstein's expertise in matters involving a variety of industrial and consumer products as well as equipment and systems within the mechanical, electrical, and marine disciplines that makes him the patent attorney clients seek out in order to receive patent protection for their creative products and improvements.
Mr. Goldstein oversees Hollstein Keating's southern New Jersey office's Intellectual Property Department, specializing in patent and trademark law. Mr. Goldstein's solid background, experience, and technical knowledge in the mechanical, electrical-mechanical, and marine arts began with his B.S. in Marine Engineering from the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, New York in 1972.
For six years, he worked as a patent examiner in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Washington, D.C., attaining primary examiner status. Since 1978, he has been registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as a patent attorney (Registration #22817), handling patent application prosecution and related litigation.
As a specialist in the patent field, Mr. Goldstein advises manufacturers, businesses, and individuals on product design, development, and integrity, guiding them efficiently through the complex patent approval process. Says Mr. Goldstein, "If it is new and useful, if it can be made, if it has potential value, it should be patented. When you are looking to protect your original invention or improvement on existing technology, when you are looking to secure intellectual property ownership rights, when you are looking to safeguard future commercial success, the goal is to protect your patent ownership rights. Over the years, I have seen the consequences of not obtaining patent protection, of opportunities lost, and the loss of investment, time, energy, marketing possibilities and ownership. With patent protection, your creative product or improvement becomes your exclusive property. And the rewards that come with it can be enormous."
Mr. Goldstein's representative patent areas include all types of mechanical and electrical products and improvements, methods and systems: for example, construction tools and equipment, cleaning tools and appliances, electrical lighting and switches, household appliances, plumbing and electrical tools, appliances and related equipment, hardware and gardening tools, conveyor systems, automotive products and accessories, vessel and marine-related products and systems, recreational and leisure-related products, and medical devices and appliances.
Among the newest technical patents that have received patent approval through Mr. Goldstein's professional guidance includes the Environmentally Safe Fluid Washout Container (U.S. Pat, No. 7,735,675) that provides for the safe and clean disposal of concrete fluid washout. The Direction and Distance Correcting Golf Putter (U.S. Pat. No. 7,674,186) utilizes an actively compliant beam to greatly assist in maintaining putter face orientation. The Welded Hand Rake (U.S. Pat. No. 7,644,569) provides a welded forked tool constructed with tines specifically welded to the tool backbone so as to prevent and virtually eliminate tine breakage. Adjustable Mouse Lap Pad (U.S. Pat. No. 7,621,499) is readily adjustable to the user's lap or thigh and has a locking system that secures the adjusted pad in place. Supercharger Central System (U.S. Pat. No. 7,591,254) is easily installed on the existing crankshaft of a vehicle engine to control the operation of the vehicle's supercharger. Adjustable Fishing Rod Holder (U.S. Pat. No. 7,559,171) allows a surfcasting fishing rod to be maintained at a variety of pre-selected angles. Adjustable Depth Fishing Lure (U.S. Pat. No. 7,316,095) is configured to be manually positioned to control usage at pre-selected depths of bodies of water. Boom Extension for a Construction Vehicle (U.S. Pat. No. 7,273,342) is designed to be attached to a construction vehicle in order to increase horizontal and vertical reach capabilities of the vehicle. Bow Mounted Vessel Propulsion System (U.S. Pat. No. 7,096,810) is a practical, effective, and efficient vessel propulsion system that addresses the limitations of prior propulsion systems, by reducing hull surface drag, enhancing fuel efficiency, and increasing vessel speed and maneuverability. Conduit Rack Electrical Junction Box (U.S. Pat. No. 7,022,912) provides for a more efficient installation and use in suspended conduit racks. Invented by a licensed electrician for use within the construction industry, this invention accepts runs of protective conduit in conduit rack systems without interfering with the horizontal run of the conduit. This improvement eliminates the need for bending runs of conduit, saving time, material costs and labor.
