LAS VEGAS — CB-X Male Chastity is ramping up its efforts to fight counterfeits with its new Brand Protection Department, which recently won a case against a company in the U.K. who had hijacked the company’s trademarks.
The unnamed company has now transferred these trademarks back to CB-X, the company says.
"We have been involved in fighting bootleggers for over 10 years and have received multiple judgments against counterfeiters in the last decade," said Nikki Yates, corporate director of A.L. Enterprises, the manufacturers of CB-X Male Chastity. "Counterfeit products not only tarnish the CB-X brand, they endanger the safety of our valued customers. Now it's time to not only bring awareness to customers about how to spot a counterfeit CB-X device, but put a stop to this nonsense altogether."
The manufacturer's new Brand Protection Department says that the recent victory over trademark infringement is just the beginning of what has in store for anyone unlawfully reproducing male chastity devices under the guise of the CB-X brand. Those carrying, selling or involved in any type of bootlegging of CB-X products will face legal action by the manufacturer.
Of the case in the UK, which CB-X recently won, the manufacturer's attorney released the following statement:
"CB-X Male Chastity, as part of its ongoing worldwide campaign to eliminate the marketing of counterfeit and infringing products, successfully enforced its IP rights in the UK by forcing a UK-based competitor to relinquish rights to confusingly similar UK trademarks and to stop selling counterfeit CB-X products."
Additionally, the manufacturer has a video on its official YouTube channel to help consumers spot the difference between a counterfeit or bootleg product and an authentic CB-X Male Chastity device.
Distributors and retailers who would like to prevent facing legal action or would like to ensure they are selling authentic CB-X devices can contact the manufacturer with any questions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
