Deckers Corp from the US trademarked the term "ugg Australia"
It's not just the word ugg, it's also the name of an Island as well

Imagine if someone trademarked the title "USA" like Fiat USA and built fiats in China for the world market

It's just wrong

Well, 'iPad' was actually an invented word by Apple, so they do sort of sit on higher ground than M$ and WIndows do.

Actually, Microsoft is a word invented by Microsoft's Paul Allen.

Shane Stedman trademarked the term "Ugh Boots" in Australia in 1971, so, 45 years ago. Maybe the term migrated from Australia to wherever you grew up.

Before that, Frank Mortel made "Ugh Boots" in 1958 with no trademark after his wife said the boots were ugly.

So people have been selling and trademarking the term before it became a part of your childhood.


This is s funny post
You assume two things
You assume I am not in Australia where the ugh boots originated, you assume I am not from the place ugh boots originated
Then you assume I am young, "before my childhood"

The boots were produced just down the road and I am that old

Probably referring to the word Windows as opposed to Microsoft.
I was talking common names being trademarked as opposed to made up names like microsoft

I was directly referring to the name of the products, AKA "Windows," not Microsoft.

Then you just personalized a term that the man had trademarked anyways.

I didn't assume anything. You didn't say you were from Australia, and I stated "wherever you grew up" aka, anywhere. Also, you explicitly said your memory was from 40 years ago, so why would I assume you're any younger than 40+?

My mistake. I should have realized that. Brain fart.
