Except it isn't a counterfeit. A counterfeit is made to fool the customer into thinking they have bought an original. These kites use a copy of Lam's graphic, but there little else in common with a real Sea Devil.
I am in NO WAY defending the use of another person's intellectual or artistic property, BUT...
I find it curious that we (and I'm included in this) get really precious about some things (Lam's graphics, Revolution's shape, and so on) but happily accept, and even defend the right of, some manufacturers who jump on another manufacturer's bandwagon.
How many Japanese (or US for that matter) motorcycle designs are basically riding on Harley Davidson's back? A 60 to 72 degree V-twin with right hand slung exhausts in a low rider, cruiser frame with forward foot pegs.
And I don't see too many people boycotting Samsung, Oppo, Lenovo, et al smartphones because "you know what? They really DO look like Apples' iPhone!"
I bet if Levi Strauss successfully released a style of jeans with a set of grommet air vents in the knees, other jeans manufacturers would bring out the same feature and we'd all stick to our favourite brand.
Can any of us remember who first marketed the wrist worn activity tracker?
We have funny morals sometimes
