Bidi Vapor, LLC, manufacturer of a premium vape pen, has been granted a temporary restraining order and asset freeze against 24 defendants, most based in China, who are accused of selling counterfeit Bidi-branded products through the wholesale website DHGate.com.
This lawsuit is part of Bidi Vapor’s comprehensive, anti-counterfeit program that was designed to combat the sale of counterfeit and infringing products. Bidi Vapor hopes to create a more responsible marketplace consisting of high-quality, authentic products.
“The manufacture and sale of counterfeit goods hurts all responsible suppliers of quality products,” said Niraj Patel, president and CEO of Bidi Vapor. “It’s a shame that independent manufacturers like Bidi Vapor have to shoulder the burden of pursuing wholesalers and retailers dealing in these illegal products, but our goal is to provide high-quality, electronic nicotine-delivery systems (ENDS) to adult consumers who are 21 and older.”
