The following article appeared in the Sun Sentinel as part of coverage of a case handled by Firm Partners, Oliver Ruiz, Meredith Frank Mendez, and John Cyril Malloy, III.
Earlier this year, Firm Associate, W. John Eagan, alongside the U.S. Marshals Service and City of Hollywood Police Department, participated in the successful execution of an ex parte seizure order against counterfeiters trading in illegitimate OMEGAXL® Omega-3 dietary supplements. Of grave concern, genuine OMEGAXL® is produced according to a patented methodology which results in a formula that is known to be free from shellfish allergens, and is relied upon by allergy sufferers to avoid severe reactions. Evidence seized during the raid, which caught the counterfeiters in the midst of their activities, included a cache of counterfeit products along with inchoate counterfeit products being assembled from generic fish oil capsules. Working from there, the Firm was able to resolve the case, resulting in an order awarding statutory damages of $400,000 to the favor of the registration owner.
Firm attorneys John Fulton and W. John Eagan will be giving a presentation entitled “Who Owns Your Company's Intellectual Property Rights?”, The event will be on November 15th, beginning at 6:30PM and is done in conjunction with the Venture Cafe Miami #ThursdayGathering!, part of a global partnership to promote start-up communities.#VCMConnects
