[Facebook] Case Labs gets their design stolen AGAIN - Page 7  

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.

How strong do you really need a box to be to hold pc parts? Hint: not that strong

Sorry to play devil's advocate, but what part of the designs exactly were stolen? I want a side by side comparison.

Well, for one, the Flex-Bay system. It's been a staple of CaseLabs cases since long and has been somewhat of a unique property in that no other cases manufacturer/designer has ever done the same. But now they have (ThermalTake and InWin), and it's a blatant ripoff. That's the biggest thing that stuck out to me. Then there's also the stem of the chassis which looks entirely similar to CaseLabs, complete with an abnormally large window.

Hey, my Fractal also has some degree of flexibility with the components that hold other components!

But yeah if they use the exact same pieces it would be pretty blantant

The funny thing is the TT Fractal copy is only £2 cheaper than the real Fractal.

Shannon Robb's response on his FB account
Quote:
Hi Guys, sorry I didnt respond to this sooner but in TW it is just now like 7AM...

First off anyone who has seen these cases, they are in no way as far as fitment and functionality a copy of anything. The scalability and modularity are simply awesome.

as far as exterior appearance, we chose a design that ideally fit everything we wanted to accomplish with the design and similar with the panel grille designs. Its only partially about appearance and more about what will provide best airflow without sacrificing panel integrity and rigidity.

Lastly, do remember that as a chassis manufacturer we all make cases and if you remember we all used to have beige boxes, its not about copying anything its about what makes the best fit for the design you are trying to accomplish.

We are pushing the limits on many things as far as performance and feature sets and im glad you think our chassis is so awesome, because if you really like it that much you will like the price even better!

stay tuned to see more cool stuff from computex.

Lets be honest, He wouldn't outright admit what he blatantly did.

Since I didn't know who this Shannon Robb guy was, I decided to look up some videos on him and found this, only uploaded a couple of minutes ago. This guy is seriously their marketing manager? He looks like a wannabe George Makris both in shape and manner of speech. I swear they must have picked him up from retail somewhere.

Yeah, it's not a 1:1 ripoff in that it has all of the features the CaseLabs cases have but it's pretty damn close. Close enough to be labeled a blatant copy.

He's not even dismissing it by showing any manner of proof in his favor. What a hack.

Hey I think I'd like the TT one more! But yeah that's a pretty blatant copy.
