    Looks like Ploom has started legal action against one of the companies involved in distributing these units. I wonder if they will go after the others or are just trying to make a statement about the name.

    Somewhere on FC there is a link to a story about a Ploom legal action resulting in the destruction of a lot of fake Pax devices and the closing down of the manufacturer. I think that this happened because they were making counterfeits (i.e. branded with Ploom trademarks) rather than knock-offs (the Floom Pox).

    I've seen another counterfeit lately, that had a ring instead of the x in the middle.^^
