Government commitment to law enforcement
The United States Government has been an active participant in protecting
the rights of copyright owners. Federal Judges have shown their
intolerance of copyright violators by handing down increasingly
large damage awards against infringers. The Chambers of Commerce
for various high-risk nations are engaged with the United States
government in restricting and limiting the widespread activities
of piracy which is evident in developing countries and other regions
committed to the international agreements and treaties.
Your responsibilities as a user
Your first responsibility as an audio user is to purchase original
articles for your use. If you purchase an illegal copy or pirated
product for business or personal use, you will be committing an
offence which is prosecutable in the Court of Law.
When purchasing a BM Audio Labs product, make sure you buy legitimate
products. If you have a good reason to suspect that a company, retailer,
reseller, dealer or individual is offering, advertising or selling
you a counterfeit BM Audio Labs product, please report their location
with as much detail as possible to your local customs authorities
and to us. Always keep the original Invoice and counterfeit good
with its packaging which came from the reseller. They can be used
as evidence to prosecute the perpetrators and get your full money
refund. Many counterfeit packaged products are designed to look
similar to the original BM Audio Labs manufacturer's products but
are made with inferior materials that fail to attain the original
BM Audio Labs manufacturer's specifications and performance criteria.
Consequently, purchasers and users of counterfeit or pirated products
face unnecessary risks:
a.. A fake product that is non-durable, "fragile" to demanding
conditions , or otherwise defective;
b.. BM Audio Labs is always making sure that every of our product
that reaches the market by legal distribution is within the most
affordable reach to customers, while retaining its highest value.
Counterfeit products however, will normally be priced exceptionally
low in order to attract your purchase. The only possible way they
can achieve this means is to compromise on the use of materials,
workmanship and/or assembly of their goods indefinitely.
c.. Lack of technical product support available to counterfeit users;
In addition, if you purchase a product that is counterfeit or copied,
you not only deny the BM Audio Labs scientists, acoustic engineers
and developers - some working a lifetime with us - their rightful
revenue, but also harm the industry as a whole by discouraging and
limiting our capacity to elevate the value of BM Audio Labs products
to higher levels while maintaining the price factor low. All BM
Audio Labs product developers spend literally years researching
and developing products for the benefit of the audio loving community
worldwide, with a passion to fulfill the gap between the highly
expensive 'out of reach' price-tag and the medium-income audio-lover's
financial affordability. A portion of every dollar spent in purchasing
an original product is funneled back into research and development
so that a better and more advanced good may be produced for you
and your future generation continuously , which is sensibly priced
and affordable to the majority community. When you purchase counterfeit
merchandize, your money only goes directly back into the pockets
of the selfish profit-oriented pirates without any other constructive
