I am from Portugal and bought a product with an American patent on the website of Massdrop (USA) that went through customs in Portugal and I had to pay a lot of money to free it from customs.
In Europe we have excellent products that are state-of-the-art in all areas of knowledge and we are always on the cutting edge of scientific research and development to create innovative products for the benefit of mankind.
The Massdrop concept is innovative because it makes some products that were already high quality even better by increasing in some way its value and drops its price for the end consumer.
In my view, it should be a goal for Europeans to have innovative products at more competitive prices (as Massdrop does), thus opening up horizons of innovation for enthusiasts or experts who do not have great purchasing power.
Congratulations to Massdrop!
