Mace® Security International, Inc. announces brand seal to combat counterfeit Mace® Brand products worldwide


Mace Brand Authentic Product Seal


CLEVELAND, Ohio – In a move aimed at differentiating counterfeit, inferior and imitation pepper spray products in the United States and around the world, Mace® Security International, Inc. (MSI) announced the creation of a Mace® Brand authentic product seal. This new seal is to indicate the product is a true and authorized Mace® Brand product. MSI owns the trademark and the name Mace®, which is a world-renown brand. Mace® Brand will be adding the seal to all packaging and product literature throughout 2018.

“If it isn’t manufactured by Mace® Brand, it isn’t Mace®,” said David Happe, executive vice president for MSI. “It is unfortunate to see falsely represented products on the market. In the interest of protecting customers from fraudulent products, Mace® Brand has begun to actively enforce its trademark on all of its products, packaging and information to assist customers in the buying process as the customers have a right to know.”

Working with regulatory agencies such as the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Mace® Brand’s goal with the authentic product seal is to clear up consumer confusion when shopping for Mace® Brand products, both online and at select national retailers. Mace® Brand is currently working with its authorized retailers to remove products that infringe on the Mace® Brand. Recently, Amazon Brand Registry certified the Mace® Brand trademark. Mace® is also registered with eBay’s Verified Rights Owner (VERO) program.

 Mace® Brand has a large network of nationally authorized partners, including but not limited to Dick’s Sporting Goods, Wal-Mart, Ace Hardware, Amazon and AutoZone.
