Consumers Warned to Beware of Fake Joby Gorillapod Products

The UK team for Joby Gorillapod tripods has issued a warning to beware of fake Joby products which are circulating, reminding consumers that cheap imitations will not be of the same quality and may not meet UK safety standards. Loraine Morgan, Senior Marketing Manager for Joby in the UK said: ‘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.’

Joby Press Release

Consumers warned to beware of fake JOBY Gorillapod products

The UK team for Joby Gorillapod tripods and accessories has issued a warning to beware of fake JOBY products which are circulating – including tripods from its most popular Gorillapod range.

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.

  1. Warning duly noted, although these gadgets don’t appeal to me personally.
    However there are questions about the actions of the JOBY representatives here. I’m not sure of the exact legal position in Germany, but this seizure of products is likely theft. Infringements of trade names, patents, etc are largely civil matters in UK but overlap with consumer law and criminal law. Counterfeit trade is a criminal activity and distributors do not have authority in law to seize these items. Any use of force to do so would further complicate matters.
    I don’t approve of counterfeiting, but there seems an element of vigilante action in this report.
