Sharpie or Skerpie

posted on 2 May 2012 in Bootlegs & Rip-offs, Chinese Bootlegs

The Skerpie packaging is so eerily close to the Sharpie packaging, that it leads me to believe that they were made in the same factory…

    Isn’t that “Skerple”?

    Skerpie is actually the direct translation of Sharpie in my mother tongue Afrikaans. Could just be destibuted to South Africa them? And I actually have used the product

    If the price is lower and quality is the same, I don’t mind buying Skerple over Sharpie at all.

    I’ve seen so many permutations of these that I’m tempted to start collecting them. My personal favorite is the Sharple (Shar-PULL), but where are the Sharpie copyright police? Have the wheels of justice ground to a halt because they’re using inferior writing instruments?

    I don’t understand the whole Chinese counterfeit mentality, but if you’re going for a copy of a well-known product, why not just copy the name, too? I see this all the time at flea markets. Truckloads of Chinese-made counterfeits (Barbie, Marvel, Disney, Nickelodeon, DVD’s, etc.) too shoddy or legally iffy to make it into dollar stores. I don’t think Western countries/companies bother to go after small-time Chinese bootleggers anyway. Is it a defense against counterfeiting accusations should they arise?

    Not trolling, just curious.
