Last night I removed the "locked" LI conference for the following reasons:
When they approached me for their own conference they assured me that they were in the process of obtaining their own US Patent and they were in the process of submitting their unit to the FDA for approval for eye safety.
To date none of this has happened and when I posted my concerns in the conference prior to locking it down, I received a telephone call from a person who identified himself as their contact person in Texas and that they were working on addressing my concerns. Follow-up has been zero on LI's part even after repeated PMs.
Personally, I would have loved to have seen Ivan follow through with his commitment and offer the US consumer his product(s) through legitimate channels. However it seems that he has chosen to shortcut this and for this I cannot support.
I'm certain that back door channels will open for his products. However, if and when they do I cannot allow links to his distributors be posted on the site. If users do decide to puchase LI's products from these sources that is a choice of theirs, however consider:
Was it a matter of economics that Ivan chose for not obtaining FDA approval and his own patent, or is it because his product could not pass FDA testing and that it is a direct infringement on other patents? Perhaps we will never know unless Ivan steps forward to address these concerns.
Caveat emptor or buyer beware....
