Patent Attorney John Rizvi Speaks at FIME International Medical Expo
Date:8/5/2009

The FIME 2009 International Medical Expo is the largest and most comprehensive medical exposition of its kind. John Rizvi will deliver a presentation titled, "Preservation of Legal Rights in Medical Innovations" at the FIME 2009 International Medical Expo in Miami Beach.

Miami, FL (PRWEB) August 5, 2009 -- On August 13, 2009 at 1:00 PM, attorney John Rizvi will deliver a presentation titled, "Preservation of Legal Rights in Medical Innovations" at the FIME 2009 International Medical Expo in Miami Beach.

Florida has one of the country's largest medical device sectors. Florida ranks second in the U.S. for number of FDA-registered medical device establishments, according to the FDA (2007). Over 20,000 Floridians work in this sector.

The FIME 2009 International Medical Expo is the largest and most comprehensive medical exposition of its kind. The exposition will feature medical manufacturers from around the world. It is held at the Miami Beach Convention Center, with over 500,000 square feet of exhibitor space. The four types of featured attendees are medical equipment, medical products, medical services and medical technology companies.

South Florida has seen steady growth in the medical device industry over the past ten years and John Rizvi, a patent attorney who specializes in patenting medical devices, is giving a presentation to educate medical technology companies on the importance of patenting new inventions.

"Patents help eliminate competition by giving patent holders the right to prevent anyone else from making, using, selling, or importing competing products in their market. This allows a patent holder to maintain monopoly pricing and avoids the product becoming a commodity," said Rizvi.

Patents for medical device companies have become increasingly important as more competitors from overseas and nationally are launching knock-off products based on a patent holder's intellectual property.

John Rizvi said that he often sees companies work with attorneys who don't fully understand the medical patent industry and draft claims that are too narrow in scope. This can allow a competitor to "design around" a patented product.

John Rizvi has over 14 years of experience focused exclusively on the preparation and prosecution of U.S. and international patent and trademark applications, patent and trademark validity and infringement opinions, licensing, transactional support, and all aspects of intellectual property litigation. John is an Adjunct Professor at the Nova Southeastern University Shepard Board Law Center where he teaches courses in intellectual property law.
