W-DMX investigates 'copycat' companies
Sweden - Wireless Solution Sweden AB has launched investigations against copycat companies worldwide using the same title as both the company and its well-known W-DMX brand of wireless DMX technology.

Niclas Arvidsson, CEO of Wireless Solution explains: "This has been a problem for a while, but it is getting worse. For example, there is an Italian company using the name 'wireless solution' on their website and printed in their catalogues, while the legal and registered company name has nothing to do with this. There is also a Chinese manufacturer selling OEM products with both 'W_DMX' and 'W-DMX' but are not in any sort of partnership with W-DMX made in Sweden by Wireless Solution Sweden AB. These examples represent blatant trademark infringement."

Arvidsson continues: "For OEM companies who support this theft of brand names we will start to take action in Europe and America. We have people investigating several of these cases now. To consumers we just advise people to work with reputable companies such as Wireless Solution Sweden AB to ensure you get the real deal.

"We've worked very hard to brand the Wireless Solution name, in addition to W-DMX and the 'Made in Sweden' mark. To see companies using names that we own is worrisome - that the name will suffer by being associated with inferior products that we don't manufacture and have no quality control over."
