| ||OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING JT PHOTO WORLD|
It's really unfortunate that I have to make this announcement, but JT PHOTO WORLD in Manila has been removed from our list of authorized distributors, and we are taking legal action against them for merchandising counterfeit goods. This is the first legal action we are taking against retailers that we will be prosecuting, and there will be more.
I appreciate so much the many e-mails you've sent me to help me with unfair business practices. We are collecting all of the information about the retailers that are involved, and we intend to take action against every single one of them.
I've had a good relationship with Jerome Tan of JT Photo World, and he has been carrying our new products such as the puffer and Whaletail as well, but you will no longer be able to purchase GF products from JT Photoworld. We only deal with dealers that are honorable.
Many of you know me in the Philippines since I spoke at your national convention. I have always had great memories of the people there, and am pretty shocked that Jerome Tan would infringe on our IP rights while still being one of our distributors. We are taking legal action against them of the highest magnitude, and please know that it is my opinion that this company is engaging in unscrupulous business practices. JT Photoworld will no longer be able to sell our products, and we will inform you of the companies that will join our authorized distributor list in the future to serve that area.
We have awesome new products coming out, and I want to make sure that my friends in the Philippines will have an opportunity to get them directly within your country.
To my many friends in the Philippines, I am sorry that this had to happen. Had Jerome Tan simply contacted me and discussed this, it wouldn't have happened.
