Penley offers Buyback Program to customers of counterfeit shafts

SAN DIEGO -- Penley Research & Development (PRD) offers Buyback Program to Customers. It has come to the attention of PRD,LLC (Penley) that there has been an increase of non-genuine PENLEY-branded golf shafts being sold on online auctions and in various online retail shops in violation of Penley's trademarks, copyrights and patents ("Counterfeit Products").

The sales of these Counterfeit Products is not only illegal but also may cause injury to many Penley customers who have purchased these products. Not only have these customers suffered financial losses due to purchasing inferior product but, since the counterfeits are not of the quality construction and design of a genuine Penley golf shaft, they could actually contribute to the deterioration of playing skills.

Penley has spent thousands of dollars developing and defending our intellectual properties and have stopped many violators in the process. As of recently, Penley's major concern is that there is still inferior counterfeit product out in the market place, being sold to the unsuspecting golfing public and this fact is of great concern for Penley.

Penley's CEO Mr. Carter Penley is concerned because not only have people lost money by purchasing a counterfeit Penley product -but more importantly, those affected are left without the service and support system Penley is famously known for. To help those who have innocently purchased Counterfeit Product, Penley has initiated a buyback program as follows:
