UGGGGGGGHH enough already

18 February 2010 4 Comments

UGG, owned by Deckers Outdoors, is suing Claire’s, run by CBI Distributing, for patent infringement. You can order a copy of the complaint here. The red boot on the right is real and the left is Fake. The two look so similar and if it was a unique style then F.A. would totally side with Ugg. However F.A. has seen so many knock-off Ugg’s at department stores like Kohls and JcPenny that we believe it is no longer unique.   Do you think the Ugg boot design  has become so common, just like the RayBan Wayfarer design, that it is not worth going to court for?

  • F.A. usually won’t bother with something like Ugg’s Uggs however it decided to simply to include the following:
  1. If you want to walk around with the ass of a sheep on your feet , you can do so, for a lot cheaper by  buying your boots from Claire’s!
  2. If you want to act like your from Orange County back in the Summer of 2006, you can do so for a lot cheaper by  buying your boots from Claire’s!
  3. And one more,…. If you want to ruin your posture, and be another woman (or confused man) with a droopy butt you can do so, for a lot cheaper by  buying your boots from Claire’s!
  • Sorry I just had to get that out of my system..I know that as the creator/writer for F.A. I try to apply what I know as a law student and should be siding with copyright protection, however this time my fashion designer self took over.

    I have no sympathy for UGGs. I’m sick of seeing them and believe they’ve become totally commonplace and should lose the suit.

    I’m waiting on my Hunter’s to come in the mail from the UK. Hopefully they’ll get here before all the snow’s gone!

    HAHA this is hilarious Mohammed, and I am right with you on the Ugg nonsense. Ugly, shapeless boots that should have died long ago, but refuse to go away.

    Honestly; the only thing they’re good for is keeping your feet warm, hidden under boot cut jeans.
