Dear Sir,
 
In page 8 of Newsweek April 2 edition, Newsweek announce an infringe product under subject "A Hula Hoop for the New Millenium". They introduce Wham-O's e-Shoop Hula Hoop, a product which seriosly infringe upon our patent right.
 
This article cause damage to our company in a certain extent. Therefore, We had informed Newsweek that a corrective action is in order. And requested them to correct the mistake and make up for this situation.
 
Unfortunately, our second letter to Newsweek fell into deaf ear.
 
The product Newsweek covered is an imitation of our product "e-Body Rejuvenator ®  " However, by the way they reported it, readers will have the notion that Wham-O's product is the original. And this deeply hurt our company's reputation and affected our business transactions.
 
We hope that by broadcasting this fact to the media, concern publishers would give us better suggestion on how to deal with this kind of situation. Please bring up your ideas, we welcome all proposals. Of course, we are also discussing this case with our lawyer.
