Re: Complain to gopro and share your experiences!

Again, the GoPro explanation is: "The letter that was posted next to the review on DigitalRev was not sent in response to the review. Obviously, we welcome editorial reviews of our products. This letter was sent because DigitalRev is not an authorized reseller of GoPro products and they were using images and had incorrect branding and representation of our product in their online commerce store."

DigitalRev has a section with their reviews of products. It also has an online store. GoPro claim their issue is with using unofficial images in the DigitalRev store, not in the review. They further point out that DigitalRev is not an authorized reseller. Implication is DigitalRev can use whatever they want in the review, but not when they are selling a GoPro product.

Of course GoPro are their own worst enemy since the takedown notice referred to the review, not the store.

Being curious about digitalrev.com I checked and discovered it is another one of those offshore companies based in Hong Kong, selling photo gear, including (according to GoPro), unauthorized GoPro equipment.
