A Sydney ugg boot maker is counter suing an American footwear company who has accused of of breaching trademark over the use of the word ‘ugg’.

Australian entrepreneur Brian Smith, cousin of Dick Smith, brought the idea to the US and registered ‘ugg’ with the US Patent and Trademark Officein 1985
‘The American public dont knowI feel sad that the US consumers,’ Deckers deceived them, she added.
Mr Terceiro said that he and his American counterparts believe they have a strong case in the Chicago district court against the footwear giant which can be found in his 2014 autobiography ‘The Birth of a Brand’.
‘Brian Smith told the trademark office that the word ugg was not a generic term. We believe that we can prove what he said was false,’ he said.
‘Theyre view is that weve got a strong case against Deckers and the judge we’re confident the judge will agree with us,
‘ he added.
Mr Oygur hopes their case against Deckers will open up more opportunities for the remaining ugg boot makers and create a regional trademark for Australian manufacturers
‘Hopefully we can put him in the witness box to admit he knew it,’ he added.
If successful, Mr Oygur said the case will open up more opportunities for the few remaining authentic Australian manufacturers.
‘I am doing this for every ugg boot manufacturer in Australia,’ he said.
‘We would like to turn it into a regional trademark which means that every manufacturer in Australia can enjoy the benefits of exporting ugg boots,’ he added.
