|Unscrupulous vendors sometimes imprint
the Mitsubishi logomark on products to deceive unwary customers.
Unauthorized use of the three-diamond mark is especially distressing
when it occurs in connection with dangerous products.
The use of the Mitsubishi logo on pills containing the club
drug Ecstasy, or similar-looking but more potent stimulants
such as the amphetamine PMA, is in no way associated with
any of the separate and independent companies which share
the Mitsubishi logomark. Accordingly, the use of our name
and logo is clearly a misuse of the reputation of the Mitsubishi
companies and constitutes trademark infringement.
While it is clear that the use of the Mitsubishi logo is illegal
and unauthorized, our greatest concern must remain the young
people who take these drugs. In some people, these drugs are
known to cause extreme dehydration, heart attacks, and kidney
failure, sometimes resulting in death. As responsible companies,
we do not have anything to do with illegal substances that
might harm the public and we do not wish in any way to be
associated with such substances.
