[Facebook] Case Labs gets their design stolen AGAIN - Page 22  

Poll Results: Is it bad that ThermalTake stole Case Labs design?

 
  • 42% (115)
    Yes! It will most likely affect their sales too!
  • 28% (77)
    Yes, but I doubt it will affect Case Labs sales the slightest.
  • 28% (77)
    Nope, it makes a cheap Case Labs case I can afford.

Boycotted, I'll never buy another thing from Thermaltake again, any customer I build a pc for won't be getting any of their products and no friends will be recommended a Thermaltake product.

Might be a small loss for the company but I'm not going to support this behavior.

So if I'm seeing this correctly, first was Mountain mods then caselabs came along and copied their design and evolved on it. Now Thermaltake has copied the Caselabs design that was copied from Mountain Mods design and it's turned into a big drama fest between thermaltake and Caselabs, while Mountain Mods (the ones who legitimately came up with the design) are taking the moral high ground and just chilling.

Got that about right?


On a side note on the InWin 90* rotated MB tray, I would venture to say they either paid the Silverstone to use it, are on friendly terms and given permission as long as they were in a different target market (I believe all the rotated InWin designs are their ultra-high end $500+ cases so in no way competition to the silverstone cases), or they did a trade out and you can find some In Win designs in the Silverstone cases as well.

I agree... caselabs is really nice and all but the prices are ridiculous.

But power suppliers must reflect the ATX standards in side (Width (150mm) and height (85/86mm)), they're all black (mostly) to reflect most of the black cases on the market, they're not copying each other, they're adjusting to the market.

So what is so unbelievable?

It happens all the time in business.

the key difference is that PSU sellers pay the original OEM for the Interior design. and the design of the fan grill off the top of the PSU is different as well. Even if they are similar in this face, exterior wise, the fan grills make the difference in this case. The grills for the TT and CL comparison are basically clone copies. The case is one of hte most artistic choices of a build. The PSU is basically considered the most boring part of a PC to talk about.

Aside from very general shape and color those psu look nothing alike and those have much less room for variations. If you think something like the 900D looks anywhere near the same as the STH10 like the thermalclone you are an idiot. A sad, sad idiot apologist.

And a case has to be able to hold a number of components in them that are also standards.

Power supplies
Fans
Radiators
5.25" openings for bay reservoirs and optical drives.
Motherboards
Etc.

The more devices that are all defined by standards that they have to hold, the less variation in look they will be ... unless you take a bunch of plastic and put wings or bumps or other crap on them (like the Cooler Master HAF case).

funny how mad these people are all getting a TT for doing what business does... if caselabs thinks they have a court case then sue TT I guess??

I just looked up mountain mods and if they were producing the cases on their site before caselabs then they should probably sue caselabs.

Maybe do it all in one court case? Should probably hang the guilty with the innocent too
