Copyright Infringement

Using any kind of display or image of copyrighted materials from G. Loomis requires the express written permission from G. Loomis. Without the express written permission from G. Loomis, the listing will be removed.  The following cannot be used in any form and will result in removal of your listing:

False Warranty

In order to claim to offer a G. Loomis manufacturer’s warranty, the eBay seller is required to provide proof of purchase from an authorized dealer that included the manufacturer’s warranty. This often means that you must be the original retail purchaser from an authorized G. Loomis dealer.

 

Further Information

Fake and unauthorized G. Loomis products are being illegally imported and sold on the Internet. These counterfeit G. Loomis products are challenging to recognize because they bear many of the labeling, makes, packaging, and trade dress of the authentic G. Loomis products.

We are providing this warning to consumers in an effort to preserve the authenticity of the valuable trademark and brand of G. Loomis.

Should you have information on the sale of counterfeit G. Loomis products, we welcome your communication and will keep the identity of our informants confidential.
