A Chinese Sportswear Brand Called Uncle Martian Just Launched, and It Appears to Be Openly Ripping Off Under Armour
A company in China just unveiled a premium sports clothing brand that looks very similar to Under Armour.
Images from Uncle Martian's launch show were shared widely on social media this week when people noticed the blatant similarities between the two sports clothing brands.
Uncle Martian is not even trying to hide the similarities between the two sports clothing brands.
On Weibo, a Chinese social-media site, Uncle Martian shared a post that included a photo of the Under Armour logo alongside images from the launch.
Under Armour was not immediately available for comment.
China has copyright laws that are fairly similar to those of Western countries. It has been a part of the World Trade Organization since 2001, which requires it to establish significant intellectual property law. The problem is that these copyright laws are difficult to enforce in China, according to the China Business Review.
See if you can tell the difference:
Here are some more pictures from Uncle Martian's launch party:
