UGGS and Trademark
Posted On 11/10/2021 07:16:59 by aaatradeplaza

While the UGG Australia brand gained a foothold in the United States around the turn of the century, an entire mum and pop industry in Australia continued to produce small batches of rustic ugg boots. And that did not suit the executives of Deckers Outdoor Corp., who were making diligent efforts to transform the image of UGG Australia into one of luxury and sophistication. The company was no longer aimed indiscriminately at discount retailers and pharmacies. Instead, its marketing efforts targeted high-end boutiques and celebrities, hoping to create consumer demand.

As part of its brand recognition and expansion strategy, Deckers Outdoor Corp. started buying ugg related trademarks around the world and sending cease and desist letters to australian ugg boot manufacturers, some of which had been in business for decades. . It was a decision that led to controversial legal battles over trademarks and intellectual property in Australia, which ultimately resulted in a favorable ruling for the country's ugg cottage industry: Ugg was considered an umbrella term and not as a brand name in Australia and New Zealand, and several manufacturers also have the right to call their products uggs.

Ugg boots made by companies based in Australia and New Zealand, such as Blue Mountains Ugg Boots or Mortals Sheepskin Factory, can be purchased online and shipped to the United States and other countries. And many competing brands produce sheepskinless boots that mimic the look of uggs. However, some companies try to pass these boots off as UGG Australia branded products to profit from the success of the business.

Deckers Outdoor Corp., which in 2010 generated 87 percent of its overall revenue from the UGG brand alone, has turned its attention to retailers selling Australia replica designer boots UGG. Although the company owned hundreds of uggs and ugg-related brands in over 100 countries, it faced increasing competition from low-cost replica designer boots.

The company says that with the help of customs officials, lawyers and private investigators, it prevents more than 60,000 fake UGGs from going through US customs each year. Unfortunately, this means that some consumers, instead of the boots they purchased, receive a letter from customs officials and Deckers Outdoor Corp. indicating that the infringing article they had ordered had been seized and should be destroyed. And, because the replica designer boots were not purchased from UGG Australia, they would not receive a refund either.
