APPLE IPHONE ACCESSORIES - PART 1 - BOXES

PART ONE: IPHONE ACCESSORY EDUCATION - BOXES
For Merchandise Rules, go to: http://wolffs.com/pages/merchandise



PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE SEVERELY RESTRICTING THE TYPES OF 
COMPATIBLE APPLE/IPHONE/IPOD/IPAD ACCESSORIES ALLOWED AT THE MARKET

We appreciate everyone's cooperation as we enact this protocol.

Due to the popularity and exclusivity of Apple products, several versions of infringing chargers, cases, earbuds and packaging, etc. exist online and from other sources. It is possible that generic, compatible non-infringing items would be allowed, but this is a complicated situation and we must take it upon ourselves to analyze various parameters in order to make a final decision regarding the appropriateness of individual products. 

Please call with questions. While we are not legal or trademark experts, we are currently studying this ever-changing, developing situation and creating our own guidelines. 

Ask before you buy cell phone accessories for resale! Your wholesaler may not stock an acceptable product.

iPhone/iPad/iPod are trademarks of Apple. Images shown for purposes of education and discussion as part of our ongoing efforts of research.

THESE BOXES ARE NOT ALLOWED
Example Effective immediately, accessories packed in these Apple look-alike boxes are not allowed. Realize that Apple investigators are looking for and seizing these items at customs, wholesalers, stores and eventually flea markets. The packaging infringes on Apple's well-known black or white packaging and may attempt to lead consumers into thinking they are getting an authentic Apple product, when it is actually a cheap, generic item. 

AUTHENTIC APPLE PACKAGING - I DO NOT YET HAVE A HEADPHONE BOX, BUT YOU GET THE IDEA!
