Please note, a Chinese company has cloned our popular UpLULA pistol magazine loader some months ago and is trying to sell them worldwide. These loaders infringe maglula US patents 7,637,048 & 7,503,138 and are cheaply made and can break with relative ease.
Further, the Chinese company has:
1. Copied all the content of Maglula’s website to a web site baring a similar name (maglula’s official web site is www.maglula.com).
2. Used an email address very similar to mine (my personal email is email@example.com).
3. Succeeded to register ‘maglula’, ‘maglula ltd.’ and ‘UpLULA’ as trademarks at the US patent office – belonging to the Chinese company.
4. Had copied maglula’s Operating Instructions erasing our patents and trademarks text.
The clones are shipped bulk or in bubble-wrap packaging often in a small brown carton box. Maglula’s patents numbers and UpLULA trademark are not molded in the loader.
Maglula had initiated legal action against the Chinese company and those who had cooperated with them in the US. We monitor the market daily. We are acting to revoke said fraud listings at USPTO.
Please be reminded that maglula is based in Israel and ships only from Israel. Our single bank account is in Israel. My email is as noted above, we use no other email address.
Please be careful and suspicious of odd requests and offers, of low-cost UpLULA loaders, and of requests to wire funds elsewhere but Israel. Do not change bank wiring instructions.
I thank you for your time and support and look forward to provide more unique products in the years to come. We sure are diligently working on some.
