Pavilion Furniture protects intellectual property

Buzzella notes zero tolerance policy

Michael Buzzella, president of Pavilion Furniture, Inc., recently reiterated his company’s zero tolerance policy for any company infringing on its patents.

“Buyers must hold their suppliers responsible for the products they are purchasing,” Buzzella said. “It is their responsibility to be sure the product is not in violation of any United States patents. If a showroom, retail store or importer sells knockoffs of Pavilion’s patented designs, whether the products are imports or manufactured domestically, they will be subject to an infringement suit.”

Miami-based Pavilion has a long and successful track record of enforcing its patents against infringers. Previously, four companies have received letters from Pavilion’s patent attorneys and have withdrawn their products as a result of the strength of Pavilion’s patents.

“In the long run it will be costly for a company to infringe on a patent,” Buzzella said. “Pavilion spends thousands of dollars to create original designs and will spend thousands more protecting its intellectual property.”

Pavilion is nationally recognized for manufacturing high-end indoor/outdoor furniture.
