Are these Endorsed by Festool?!
« on: December 11, 2017, 06:13 PM »
 Appeared in my FB time line today.
Wonder if they are officially endorsed by Festool USA , @TylerC   [big grin] [smile]

If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.

No, Festool has not approved these. They were brought to our attention earlier today.

@TylerC & Phil ,

I feel for you guys on this one.  Might suggest your Corp. Counsel contact Nike to team up. They take this stuff really seriously and have lots of experience in the matter.

I am glad to hear it is not an authorized or endorsed product.

It's not the way any respectable business would promote their product line.

If you have to tear down the other guy to sell your product you don't have much.

I say let your products speak for themselves as Festool and other companies have
always done is all you need.

Is it even a real product? In the picture, the letters on the back are just photoshopped on.

Not only Festool, here's an Abarth one, which maybe be legit, but that grammar is offensive.
