What's New in the PopSocket World 

"Knock-off" PopSockets have been on the rise recently, with a number of factories selling them. PopSocket LLC has a patent on PopSockets with iClick having the exclusive rights to supply PopSockets to the promotional industry. The patent process is so important in this specific industry, but it is important to identify the suppliers that are selling these fake products. Many companies are wondering if they should start selling the fakes in order to save a sale, but there are risks that are far too great. 

The International Trade Commission (ITC) issued a rare general exclusion order (GEO) for PopSocketsLLC that empowers U.S. customs to seize imported counterfeits that violate PopSockets' patents. Many companies have been left without a product after their products were seized and confiscated as a result of this. 

Many of these "Knock-offs" are cheaply made and do not compare to the actual PopSockets in terms of quality, usefulness, and longevity. A budget can sometimes be a question for some individuals, but there are other products out there that PopSocket offers that can be a better alternative. These products are made in the United States, which is why buying products overseas can break the U.S. patent. By striving to provide our customers with the best service, buying PopSockets from the original LLC is what we will continue to do!

The designs are endless, which is why they are good gifts, promotional item, or a way to get a companies name out in the industry.
