I'm John Rizvi, the patent professor, they told me I was nuts for leaving a position in New York City representing large multinational corporations for their patent matters to start my own firm, because I represent individuals and small startups. But what legitimate idea starts in someone's home, they said, the garage inventor is a myth. I didn't believe that 20 years ago, and I certainly don't believe it today. The greatest innovations don't always come from huge multinational corporations, but they come from individuals, inventors, who oftentimes have vision that's well beyond their means. They're called misfits. And they're told that their dreams are just fantasies, and that their idea is unrealistic. You know what, those are not the people that are lying down during times of crisis, saying that the sky is falling. The heroes that I admire are the ones who realize that life is short. And they are sick and tired of putting their lives on hold, and not pursuing their dreams. Because somebody's told them that it's not the right time, or that they're not the right person. The people that are my heroes are the ones that chase their dreams, and have decided that this is their time. And this is their life, and they want to live it the way they want to live and create what they want to create. I have spent the past 20 years representing inventors like these were time I think we're going to see that it's not going to be politicians, or the media that helps solve this crisis. It's going to be an innovative and problem solving inventor, and it may not fit this perfect mold that might come from a large multinational corporation, but they're just as likely to be an individual or a scrappy, small startup. And if they are, and I think that's what it will be to hell. If I'm not going to say I told you so.
