Magic-Flight Launch Box Counterfeit Identification Guide
A “counterfeit” is a product that is made in imitation of something else with the intent to deceive. Counterfeit Magic-Flight Launch Boxes have been showing up in the marketplace since 2010. These counterfeit Boxes sell for much cheaper, perform poorly, and in some cases can be detrimental to your health. In July 2013 our Patent (8,488,952 B2) was accepted and we are now actively pursuing legal action against these patent infringing products.
As a company, we welcome healthy competition and innovation, yet when a manufacturer blatantly copies, uses deceptive marketing, and compromises user safety, we are committed to ending these unethical practices. By compiling our observations into the following downloadable, printable PDFs, we hope to shed some light on what to look for to avoid getting ripped off by these fraudulent products.
We recommend avoiding purchasing from online marketplace websites like eBay, Craigslist, and Rakuten. Counterfeits are very prevalent on these websites and will advertise themselves as legitimate Magic-Flight Launch Boxes, sometimes even using Magic-Flight’s product photography to mislead buyers. Purchase your Launch Box from a shop or website that you trust, or through our online store (http://sales.magic-flight.com). Always make sure a Launch Box has a serial number before purchasing it. If you have any questions about the legitimacy of a product, please do not hesitate to contact us.
