"We will not stand by and allow others to blatantly copy our products."
Adidas has had it with copycat company's who are blatantly ripping off their products, specifically Skechers, who they have filed another lawsuit against.
In a statement, Adidas said:
Today, adidas filed another lawsuit against Skechers. We will not stand by and allow others to blatantly copy our products and infringe on our valuable intellectual property. These shameless imitations tarnish the reputation of our brand and our people who work tirelessly to research and develop technical innovations and designs that help athletes make a difference.
We are the leader in footwear innovation, design and engineering, creating high performance shoes for athletes. We are a company of creators and makers who lead the industry to new standards, continually bringing the best in high-quality products to consumers.
This pattern of unlawful behavior and freeloading in the industry is outrageous and must end. We will take every legal measure possible to protect and defend our innovations.
In February, a federal judge ordered Skechers to stop producing sneakers that were an exact knock-off of their iconic Stan Smith design, but they swiftly transitioned into making other Adidas replicas, like the "Springblade," which is why The Three Stripes have filed another lawsuit.
Stephon Marbury better pump the brakes on his next Starbury shoe because it looks eerily similar to another one of Adidas' most popular sneakers, and if we've learned one thing it's that Adidas isn't going to stand for that nonsense no mo'.
