sure they're might be older "official" threads, brought across from the old forum - but I thought this forum should have it's own inaugeral OFFICIAL thread.

Does that sound official enough?

soooo....what do people talk about in the "Official thread of the hangout" anyways?

gotta make it bold to be official:
the first OFFICIAL thread of the new hangout

italics wouldn't hurt either:
the first OFFICIAL thread of the new hangout

then say "copyright 2004":
the first OFFICIAL thread of the new hangout copyright 2004

now THAT sounds official...

Well I would like to know where the 'tm" mark came from in the thread title. Trademark is a bit of a sensitive topic with me at the moment - a US company (which calls itslef DekkerAustralia even tho there is NOTHING Australian about it) has trademarked a generic aussie term. Seems I am no longer allowed to call ugg boots "ugg boots" as they have trademarked the term.

Now how on earth an american company can "own" a word that has existed in aussie english for 50 years escapes me. The word has appeared in the Maqaurie Dictionary since 1982 as meaning "sheepskin boots", but even the Australian dictionary has had to bow to threats to sue from the US company.

Simple, they're Canadian.

Kiz, fight the American company by taking a page from American history. Do they sell their boots in Austraila? Chances are they ship them in by boat. Find out what docks the company uses. They should have a warehouse or some kind of storage facility nearby to keep them before they get shipped out overland. Bust in the the warehouse and dump the contents in the harbour. Have yourself a Aussie Boot Party patterned off the American Tea Party. Doing so would sure to be picked up by the worldwide media and the irony would not be lost on anyone. This Dekker company would become a laughingstock over night. No one would buy their boots for fear of being humiliated. You Austrailans would become worldwide heroes over how you made fools of an American company. It would give other countries and non-American businesses hope that they too could beat the Americans.

Just something to think about. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

And kreeden - the disney people are really horrible - just ask that orphanage in the UK who own the rights to Peter Pan. Warner Bros are pretty bad too - there was a court case (and I can't remember the outcome) to do with the Tasmanian Devil (which aside from Warners cartoon character IS a native australian animal) - the case was something to do with that THEY owned the rights to the name Tasmanian Devil.

Ok, but they have to come into the country in order for the boots to be sold in stores right. That means that they get shipped in. That means that they have to have some kind of storage facility or a distrubition center where all the boots come in and are then split up into smaller shipment to the individual stores.
As I said in the earlier post they most likely come in by sea. There's a good chance they have some kind of storage facility near the docks (cheaper). Or, since the boots come from China they would have to be kept in some kind of customs building until cleared for entry.

Since the participants of the Boston Tea Party dressed as Native Americans, you Aussies can dress as Al-Quada terrorists.

Oh, and before you start whining about it being against the law and that there will be security guards, remember, the law, security guards, alarm system monitors are all Aussies too. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Ron - you misread my post. Aussie companies make them here and sell them here (and may well export them as well). The nasty US company in question makes them in China and sells them in the US and Europe. They don't sell their cheap imitation chinese ugg boots here.

So there is no shipment to intercept.

Which is a shame - cos your idea is a good one!

Homer - I am not an international lawyer either! *g* I have this information in an email that I got from an ugg support group.

Save an Australian icon -The great Australian ugg / ug or ugh boot !!!!
26 January 2004
My fellow compatriots,

Many of you will have read recently that an American company (Deckers Outdoor Corporation [Deckers] trading as Ugg Holdings, Inc. in America) are having their lawyers send out threatening letters to most if not all manufacturers and retailers selling ugg boots. In essence, Deckers claim to own the trademark "ugg" which they have trademarked in the US and ugh and ugh-boots which they purchased as trademarks here in Australia.

However, under trademark law (Section 24 of the Australian trademarks legislation) it was pointed out by a patent attorney recently in an online forum:

"Section 24 Trade mark consisting of sign that becomes accepted as sign describing article etc.


(1) This section applies if a registered trade mark consists of ... a sign that, after the date of registration of the trade mark, becomes generally accepted within the relevant trade as the sign that describes or is the name of an article, ...


(2) [In such a case] ... the registered owner (a) does not have any exclusive rights to use ... the trade mark in relation to (i) the article ... "
Further evidence in support of the fact that the terms ugg/ug or ugh boots are generic and/or descriptive is shown when we begin looking at their history. We have documentation showing "Fug Boots" (presumably flying ug boots) worn by World War I pilots in 1917/1918. In addition, the Blue Mountain Ugg Boots company began back in 1933 and Mortels Sheepskin Factory (who sold long ugh boots) started in 1958. These dates precede ANY use of the ugg boot term by Deckers and its predecessors. Hold a pair of sheepskin boots up to any Australian and ask them what they are and the overwhelming majority will say ugg boots.

Deckers have successfully used the Verified Rights Owner (VeRO) program on eBay to have most non-Deckers branded ugg boots removed from eBay both in Australia and overseas. This has resulted in a loss of business by all those affected and such behaviour by Deckers is anti-competitive and may be against the Australian Trade Practices Act. Deckers are currently disputing the registration of domain names with "ug" (and derivatives) with a test case underway with the organisation responsible for the upkeep of the domain system - ICANN. If this dispute is found in favour of Deckers, no one else will be able to use "ug" (and derivatives) in their domain name.

Many livelihoods are being threatened by Decker's campaign which could only be described as another example of a giant US corporate intent on monopolising an industry that was never theirs to own in the first place. The difference here is that ugg/ugh or ugh-boots were accidentally allowed to go through the trademark process. But this does not mean the trademarks can not be challenged - something that we intend doing through a variety of methods.

In yesterday's "The Sunday Telegraph", it was reported that Westhaven Industries, a non-profit organisation, which employs 65 intellectually disabled people to make ugg boots at its factory in Dubbo, have also been threatened with legal action.

"We have been selling sheepskin products for 30 years, long before ugg boots became trendy in America, and to have to give up the name is just ridiculous," Mr Sullivan, production manager, said.


"It's like registering the name sneakers it's a generic term that everyone uses."
Many of you might say - so what - why not call them something else? But how then does one re-educate the public as to their new term when it has taken at least 100 years to do so for their existing terms? Many of the Australian retailers have taken their product to the Internet where search words and phrases become paramount to having products found. If we can't call them ugg/ug or ugh boots then how WILL our business be found?

Whether you like or dislike ugg boots is not the issue. The point is that yet another Australian icon is likely to go offshore through a failure in our system. And millions of export dollars and thousands of jobs are likely to go as a result. I urge you all to spread the word and forward this email to as many of your online friends as possible. We are in the process of setting up an Australian sheepskin manufacturers and retailers association and have already taken steps to build a website outlining information surrounding the issue. It is located at http://www.saveouraussieicon.com and if you wish to help us further, please visit it for more information.

A fresh copy of this email can be found at: http://www.saveouraussieicon.com/email-campaign-one.htm

My fellow compatriots - please stand up and be counted. Help us spread the word, lobby the Australian government and save our icon - the Australian ugg boot!

Thank you,

The Australian sheepskin ugg boot manufacturers and retailers

Kis, can you get an email address for Deckers? If so let's start an email campaign. If we can clog up Deckers servers with a few thousand emails, each saying that they will never buy a deckers product, they MIGHT start to rethink what they're doing.
Just remeber to keep all emails clean of language and non-threating. Just calmly state your feelings on the matter. Emails can be traced and threatening and inflammatory ones can make you liable for a lawsuit or other legal actions.
