Last week, we told you about the Pearl: Compact Mirror & USB Rechargeable Battery that was seeking funding on Kickstarter. Soon after our post went live, Kickstarter suspended the project because of a DMCA copyright infringement claim. Daniel Chin of HYPER by Sanho Corporation, says: “It was a ridiculous, unfounded and fraudulent claim which Kickstarter did not bother to verify with us. To make matters worse, Kickstarter stuck a big notice in place of our project page with a link to the false claims that allege that ‘we agree that we bought a stolen design’. Doesn’t matter to Kickstarter if the very public notice and DMCA claim accuses us of wrongdoing and that we have no way to publicly address to all those lies.”
The Pearl project has moved to Indiegogo. Check the project page for a link to read HYPER by Sanho Corporation’s story of what happened with the Kickstarter project. If you want to back the project, now’s your chance. You can still make an early-bird pledge of $25 for your choice of a red, silver, or gold Pearl, to be delivered on or before December 24. Other pledges will be delivered in January 2015. Funding for the Pearl: Compact Mirror & USB Rechargeable Battery ends on November 24, 2014 at 11:59pm PT.
