Calling Ellery Queen; Mannix, clean your gun! Colombo stock up on your cigars, we have a case for you. Images of American manufacturer products appearing on bogus websites is out of control, with no end in sight. Ironically, the head of a movement to try and shut them down was even targeted.
“Cheap Chinese knockoff’s.. now on PINTEREST. http://pinterest.com/
sososmall/care of Balllily.com (this site was not on your list Paul),” wrote St. John.
Balllily.com was added to a growing list of pirate websites obtained by eWedNewz in the uphill battle against the enemy.
“We see it growing like a weed,” admitted Steve Lang, who called out to fellow manufacturers to assemble against the growing problem. In a recent update Lang encourages sources tattling on websites involved with pirating in any form. “E-mail me the information,” he wrote in the update.
Lang thanked Stajka for the tip and instructed his team to contact Pintrest to remove the images or face legal action. But as readers are learning the growing problem is all over.
Harper/SeamsCouture replied to ewedNewz coverage saying, “LinkedIn is rampant with these Manufacturers trying to get business btw. They join all the related Fashion groups and send constant direct messages and connect requests trying to lure Indy Designers like me into the dark side. I’ll gladly tattle if you’ll provide an email
And on another note: Mon Cheri etc need to start manufacturing back here in the US or get used to this, the Chinese will never stop. Don’t use them and most of the problem is already solved. 70% of upscale US Consumers deliberately buy Made in USA,” according to the comment.
