Have you ever bought a knockoff?

As soon as the Pressy maker said 'The Verge supported the knockoff' the camera immediately turned to someone else

Yes found a great alternative to the luminous lamp on amazon that is low priced and not a rip off since it’s made of wood on the outside and water resistant paper, haven’t bought it yet but plan to soon since I saw one at a store for around $200 and found this one I mentioned amazon for around $30 for the smaller one and $50 for the bigger one.

I'm designing a product and had an appointment with a lawyer specialized in patent law. Damn, first 10 second got instantly me in

Some years back there was this trend with headphone jack mascots. My mom had one but for some reason her internal speakers wouldn't work when the mascot was there even though the plug in the mascot was non-conductive plastic.

Why is the Lumio guy surprised that people recreate his product? The original is horrendously overpriced.

Counterfeits have way more competitive pricing and that's where i think they really succeed. These kicktarter projects need to focus on getting costs down

Knockoffs aren’t a problem. It’s called competition. Even if you invented it unless it provides better value Idk who I buy from.

There is no such thing as “unfair”. An gazelle won’t scream inequality when an lion is eating it.

china's copy pastes revolution.
a major issue is we have no real tech manufacture center. we need to walk out of china and make it here so at least you can sue people. you can't really sue people in china when it comes to knock off. it's pretty much legal

Or just be a "good idea" person, that licenses each idea to a big company, that already has the manufactuering and lawyers in place. Do you want to invent? Or do you want to run a small buisness? You can do both, or not?

This is called a competitive market and should be encouraged. If someone can make your product cheaper or more desirable then they should be allowed to, because if they aren’t able to then it’s a monopoly. This is the stupidest video I’ve ever watched. Yeah it’s sad your idea got copied but it’s your fault if you couldn’t make your product more desirable than the other company’s. Stop crying over something you did to yourself.

People complain about the price of Lumio, but you're not the demographic his company is targeting. That's why he doesn't really pursue legal damages for cheap knockoffs because they're not really damaging his market.

Why didn't he patent in China?
HelloHa - Před 3 měsíci
One huge factor that somehow got completely ignored is where do you manufacture? If you choose to do it in china the factories your hire to make your beautiful design will just continue production as soon as you are out of the door. It is part of their culture, they don't have the same ethics. So some major advice. Do it LOCALLY!

no wonder the Lumio guy didn't care.. he's selling his for 200$, and the knockoffs are 12$ - totally different markets

I backed Pressy back then. It didn't teally work when it finally shipped.

When you have to pay $200 to buy a book light...yeah that knock-off doesn't look so bad.
DerParadonym - Před 4 měsíci
I actively search for knockoffs of kickstarter products. Because they're faster in shipping and kickstarter is mostly likely to fail.
First I have the kickstarter guy having problems to find manufacturers for that unexpected large quantities and then I have the AliExpress shop which is already selling this product for a price I expected the hardware to cost.

I bought TWO lumio, and they both broke and no matter how many times I reach out the the service team, they never help me restore my purchase. I even ask for a way to repair them myself, I got ignored. So instead I went on Amazon and bought the cheaper one, use them every weekend, camping for 2 years. still working.
