    The UGG trademark has been the subject of dispute in several countries. As a result the term "ugg" has been removed from the trademark registry in Australia. Thus

    Australian and New Zealand manufacturers continue to market ugg-style sheepskin boots under their own brands using the word "ugg." Outside Australia and New Zealand,

    the UGG (written in capital letters) brand of ugg boots is a registered trademark of Deckers Outdoor Corporation.
    In 1971, an Australian surfer, Shane Steadman, cheap bootsbegan selling ugg boots and registered the name UGH as a trademark.In

    1979 Brian Smith, another Australian surfer, brought several pairs of Australian-made uggs to the United States and began selling them in New York and to surfers in

    California. He set up Ugg Holdings Inc., acquired the Australian mark from Steadman, and in 1985 registered a U.S. trademark on a rams head logo with the words

    "Original UGG Boot UGG Australia". In 1995 he sold his interest to Deckers. In 1996 Deckers registered a trademark for "UGG" in the United States.

    In 1999, Deckers began asserting its new trademark and sent out cease and desist letters to Australian manufacturers, but did not press the issue beyond that.In the

    early 2000s, demand for ugg boots was soaring, partly as a result of US$8 million spent on marketing by Deckers, but also due to several celebrity endorsements.

    Australian manufacturers began selling uggs over the Internet, and Deckers' law firm Middletons of Melbourne began a serious effort to halt the Australian companies'

    sales. In 2004, Deckers sent cease and desist letters to a number of Australian manufacturers, including Mortels Sheepskin Factory, preventing them from selling uggs

    on eBay or from using the word in domain names. In response, the issue was discussed in the Australian House of Representatives where Robert Baldwin MP compared the

    controversy to an Australian company trying to buy the trademark "cowboy boot".[
    In response to these actions by Deckers, Australian manufacturers formed the Ugg Boot Footwear Association to fight the corporation's claim, arguing that "ugg" is a

    generic term referring to flat-heeled, pull-on sheepskin boots. They further argued that Australian manufacturers had been making and trading this style of boot for

    decades, including into the United States. One of these manufacturers, Perth's Uggs-N-Rugs,cheapest ugg boots appealed to

    Australian trademark regulators, who in 2006 ruled that "ugg" is indeed a generic term and stated that it should be removed from the trademark register. The officer

    who heard the case stated that the "evidence overwhelmingly supports the proposition that the terms (ugg, ugh and ug boots) are interchangeably used to describe a

    specific style of sheepskin boot and are the first and most natural way in which to describe these goods." The 2006 ruling only applies in Australia and Deckers still

    owns the trademarks in all other jurisdictions, including the United States, China, Japan and the European Union.tall ugg boots

    In 2005, the validity of the UGG trademark was challenged in federal court in California; the court ruled for Deckers, stating that consumers in the United States

    consider UGG to be a brand name. In his final order, the judge stated that the defendants had provided anecdotal evidence the term's generic usage, but Deckers

    countered through submitting declarations from four professionals in the footwear industry who stated that "UGG" is widely recognized in the industry as a brand name,

    not a generic term. The case applies only to U.S. usage.
    During a trademark infringement case a generic term defense was rejected by a Dutch court. La Cheapa distributed sheepskin boots on an Internet site from the

    Netherlands, describing them on its website as "100% authentic Ugg Australian boots!!!" with "UGG logo on the heel" in boxes virtually identical to Deckers

    packaging.Ruling in favor of Deckers, the officer who heard the case stated it cannot establish as fact that this is considered a generic name in the Benelux based on

    the opinion of one or more companies in Australia.

    Being one of many clothing products made from animal skin, the production of ugg boots has been the subject of criticism by the animal liberation movement. In the

    decade beginning in 2000, the group called for the boycott of Ugg Boots and their replacement with alternatives not made from animal skin.

    as well as the myriad of bizarre stressers that tax us daily

    Remember The Jungle Book? We got a whole song of Baloo telling us about the basic things we need and to let the rest slide. I think maybe that big bear was on to

    something. In fact, most of our childrens stories (often courtesy of Disney) have some valuable lessons to teach us. The genie in Alladin whispers in his ear to

    Be yourself!buy ugg boots Theres the ever famous Hakuna Matata (and please dont tell me you need to be told which one

    THAT is from,) Snow White whistled while she worked, and the Little Mermaid wanted nothing more than the simple pleasure of sand between her toesyou know, when she

    finally got toes.ugg boots australia

    UGG fits pretty well into this whole enjoy the simple things mentality. Take a breath, get over it, and go for a simple choice. The Classic is certainly lacking in

    excess frills, and is truly comorting in its softness, just like a blankie was when we were younger.
    It seems that our great cache of childhood stories are teaching us to relax and enjoy the simple things in life. Goodness knows we all have to deal with work, jobs,

    family (parents, children, siblings, and Crazy Uncle Al), cheap ugg bootsas well as the myriad of bizarre stressers that tax us

    daily, (do I get the Tuna Casserole or the Egg Salad Sandwichor a piece of cake?)

    I agree with Molly Mayfaires article Oh to be a kid again on the longed-for comforts that soothed us as children. Our need for assuagement does not diminish as

    we get older, but the things we have to ease our day evolve. The teddy bear becomes the UGG Coquette slipper, and going to the store in a pair of Bailey Button boots

    can help you revisit the comfort of your onesie. It really is about the simple pleasures, and how wonderful that the luxurious UGG is in fashion!
