"Knockoff" Company Sues Knockoff Company For A Knockoff Of Their "Knockoff"

comments

We've written about Thursday Friday before, and their cheeky takes on real, designer bags who've recently gotten into a heap of trouble for using the likenesses of Birkins on their "Together" canvas tote-bags (they've since settled the lawsuit with Hermès). Now, Thursday Friday has found knockoffs of their canvas "knockoffs" on eBay, with India-based sellers peddling a "Together Tote Bag" for $25 less than Thursday Friday. “It’s not new that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” said Thursday Friday's Roni Brunn. “In this case, imitation is an unintentional form of comedy... If the bags were better made, we’d buy them, too.” Confused yet? Let us know—is eBay in the wrong, or is Thursday Friday just calling the kettle black? (WWD)
