SALT LAKE CITY, April 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LuMee LLC, the maker of the original and patented illuminated LuMee™ cell phone case, reports it has engaged international enforcement of its intellectual property rights due to the recent success and worldwide attention of the LuMee case. Cheaply made "knockoffs" and "fakes" have recently entered the market and include outer features that may appear identical to the LuMee product but contain cheaply made, potentially hazardous components.
LuMee has earned a widespread reputation for quality and innovation, attracting major celebrities, distributors and customers from all over the world. Low quality, unauthorized fake "LuMee" products have been introduced by unauthorized manufacturers and resellers, which could put customers at risk of purchasing a product with multiple glitches that may not offer any protection for their smartphones.
"We want to make our customers and the market aware of this situation, and to clearly state that we take our LuMee brand, built on high-quality products, and intellectual property rights very seriously," said Robert G. Pedersen II, LuMee's Chairman and CEO. "LuMee will vigilantly protect its intellectual property rights and trademarks, and unauthorized use by others will not be tolerated. As LuMee continues to grow, innovate and expand its product lines, we will create an even stronger fortress of protection."
LuMee is currently placing companies and manufacturers on notice for their violation of LuMee's brand and intellectual property rights and will vigorously pursue these matters. To ensure the purchase of a genuine LuMee product contains the highest quality products, protection and warranty, the company encourages customers to only purchase products from LuMee.com and authorized LuMee retailers. A list of LuMee Authorized Retailers is available at www.lumee.com/brand-protection.
LuMee originated the illuminated, LED-lit cell phone case and was the first to market, making the product available to people in the U.S. and around the world since 2014. To protect and ensure customers receive authentic LuMee products, LuMee has established an extensive intellectual property portfolio, including U.S. Patent No. 9,086,610 and U.S. Patent Publication No. 2015/0276187 as well as International Design Patents, Patents pending, Copyrights, Wordmarks and Trademarks.
LuMee encourages customers and partners to report fakes or copycats to LuMee LLC via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
