Why Report Licensed Knock-Offs?
Knock-off copies are generally inferior products of low quality and low safety standards. Many safety features are missing and these products are not in compliance with ASTM F-24 standards. These copied products ultimately result in injuries and lawsuits. Lawsuits in turn hurt the entire inflatable industry by increased insurance costs and cast a negative light on inflatable attractions.
Business owners pay a small premium to own inflatables from top entertainment properties with the official licensed characters. Companies that purchase counterfeit licensed inflatables do so to cut out the intellectual property owner and the manufacturer. This is not fair to the intellectual property owner, the manufacturer, and ultimately you since they are competing in the same market but not paying the market value to own the inflatables.
Let's face it, counterfeit licensed inflatables are unethical and dishonest. It creates a unfair market and in the end hurts your pocket. Why should these businesses benefit from the hard work of others.
