PITTSBURGH, PA, (October 7, 2020) – Ference & Associates, a leading Intellectual Property law firm based in Pittsburgh, PA, announced that a preliminary injunction has been entered in a lawsuit filed against sellers on the Amazon.com, eBay.com, AliExpress.com, and Wish.com online marketplaces.  The preliminary injunction prohibits the defendants from selling counterfeit or knock-off versions of the FROGLOG® critter saving escape ramp.

The FROGLOG® critter saving escape ramp is an effective, inexpensive, and simple device that helps swimming pool owners conserve native wildlife while keeping pool water clean and reducing maintenance.  Rich Mason, inventor of the FROGLOG®, invested hundreds of hours of research, product development, and testing into developing the product.  An easy to set up device, animals such as frogs, birds, chipmunks, squirrels, lizards and more can be saved thanks to the FROGLOG® critter saving escape ramp.

“When people purchase a genuine FROGLOG® product I receive such great feedback including really passionate emails saying this is the best thing since sliced bread,” says Rich Mason.  “When people purchase a counterfeit, they are not happy with the product and leave a poor review of our genuine product.  This hurts our company and our retailers who work hard selling our high-quality product.”

“We continue to represent businesses whose products are counterfeited and sold through online marketplaces,” said Stanley Ference, the firm’s Managing Partner and lead attorney on the matter. “The courts continue to take a strong stance to protect small businesses from having to complete against fake versions of their own products.”

The preliminary injunction was entered by the Honorable W. Scott Hardy of the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.  Stanley Ference was assisted in this matter by Brian Samuel Malkin and the team of attorneys and professionals at Ference Law.
