Johnny Cupcakes Raids Thailand Copy Cat

Vantage Eternal Shop in Bangkok, Thailand has been doing a very bad thing. They have been selling counterfeit Johnny Cupcakes goods. With the cooperation of the Thailand authorities and of course a good trademark lawyer, Mr. Cupcakes was able to have the illegal goods confiscated.

“Some say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I say that it’s the sincerest form of getting punched in the face. Or the sincerest form of asking for a field trip to court. Every day is a battle. Seriously, every day. Today we won a big one. Bangkok, Thailand. I was informed by quite a few Johnny Cupcakes customers that this store was carrying hundreds of fake Johnny Cupcakes t-shirts. We even got this person kicked off of eBay for selling fakes. Well well… their store was just raided by police, over 400 t-shirts were confiscated, and the owner was arrested. He’ll be going to court shortly.”

Of even more interest to me is the photo of the “Infringer’s Board” (see below for photo) that Johnny posted. This is a white board that features brands who have caused intellectual property damage from around the world. The list includes:

  • Urban Outfitters
  • Hot Topic
  • Billabong
  • Pastry
  • Kohls
  • Random Bakeries
  • Various Online Stores
  • Stussy (iPhone Packaging)
  • Thailand
  • Korea (Ku Sung Bum, Koo Sung Bum, Benny Frying Pan)
  • Stockhold
  • Malaysia (Padini)

There are some big names on that list.
