Customers Warned About Fake JOBY Gorillapods - JOBY has issued a warning about fake Gorillapods on the run up to the Christmas period.
At the recent Photokina Show in Cologne, JOBY representatives took decisive action against two manufacturers of “rip-off” products. In the presence of Photokina show organisers and security, imitation products and promotional material were confiscated from the booths of two Far-East based manufacturers.
Loraine Morgan, Senior Marketing Manager for Joby in the UK said: "Since the original GorillaPod was launched, we have always taken a strong stance with manufacturers and distributors of products that infringe on our design patents – and will always take action to close down such activity."
"The quality of these products is poor and ultimately it is the consumer who suffers when they buy a product that does not deliver the function and reliability of a genuine JOBY product."
Consumers are reminded that only genuine JOBY products carry the brand logo – and cheap imitations will not be of the same quality and may not meet UK safety standards.
